Man Injured in Scooter, Car Accident on Highway 16 in Kerrville, TX

Kerrville, TX -- June 2, 2022, one person was injured due to an accident where a car crashed with a scooter along Highway 16.

Investigators reported that the crash took place at around 11:00 a.m. along Sidney Baker Street/Highway 16 near Yorktown Boulevard.

The reports said that a 69-year-old man was on a scooter traveling along the sidewalk. At a driveway entrance, a Mitsubishi was waiting to turn onto the highway. That driver told the investigator that her "brakes gave way" as the man passed, causing the vehicle to hit the scooter.

The scooter rider had incapacitating injuries due to the collision. Additional details about the collision cannot be confirmed at this time.

Commentary on Scooter, Car Accident on Highway 16 in Kerrville

To be perfectly blunt, I am highly skeptical of this claim of brake issues, to say the least. Not only is it relatively rare, it also seems unusual that it would happen right when it did. The far more likely explanation is that the driver wasn't paying attention and is making excuses or perhaps bending the truth. But thirty years of experience doesn't teach you to jump to conclusions. It teaches you to let the evidence speak for itself.

If thorough investigations show that there was some sort of mechanical issue here, unlikely as that may be, it wouldn't be the first time. As such, taking steps to consider these claims if only to rule them out is prudent for anyone in need of help after a collision like this. Besides, if it turns out there is some sort of dangerous manufacturing defect to address, bringing it to light could help the victim and countless others that would otherwise be at risk. Whether or not authorities are giving this incident that kind of attention remains to be seen.
