Commentary on Burstine Yvette Jones Truck Accident in Harris County
As open-and-shut as a report like this comes across, it's always important to consider all possible contributing factors. Sometimes, unusual situations come up that police don't always catch immediately--or even at all.
A while back, for example, a colleague of mind brought up an interesting situation where a woman was texting and driving before hitting the back of a truck. What stood out was the severity of her injuries. Despite slowing down significantly before impact, she had incredibly serious injuries. As investigators looked further, it turned out she had a defective airbag and likely would have been fine otherwise. What folks no doubt wrote off as just some irresponsible driver getting themselves hurt turned out to be a serious manufacturing issue authorities completely overlooked.
I'm not at all saying that happened here, of course, but it's one of the many factors a prudent independent investigator considers which authorities often don't. Looking into these things can present opportunities to get people the help they need, which should be reason enough to take those steps as soon as possible.
