Commentary on Theodore Cantu Accident on FM 3005 in Galveston

It's at least some silver lining to read there were only minor injuries here, but it's important people understand that these early reports don't always tell the whole story. Even supposedly minor injuries should be taken seriously, especially after a commercial vehicle wreck. There's no telling whether the aftermath is really as innocuous as reports make it seem.

Here's an example of what I mean: I worked on a wreck a while back where a man's car was rear-ended by a commercial vehicle, resulting in a back injury. Doctors initially called a simple sore back and sent him home with instructions to use a heating pad and take ibuprofen for the pain. He tried that, but days later the pain was nearly crippling. Another trip to the ER and some medical scans showed the crash actually ruptured a disk in his spine. He needed surgery and lengthy recovery before he could even consider getting life back to normal. What police reports said was just a "minor" injury was really anything but.

Obviously I hope nothing like that happens after the Galveston wreck. We helped that man get help, but make no mistake--it was at no point a walk in the park and I wouldn't wish it upon anyone. If nothing else, though, it's one of the examples from decades of work in this field that show how important it is to take even seemingly-simple truck accidents as seriously as possible. Hopefully nothing too extreme happened here, but I see no reason that experienced professionals shouldn't look into things.
