Commentary on Car Accident on Old Iowa Park in Wichita Falls
There isn't a lot of information about this crash, but folks tend to assume that authorities get all the answers, and that's that. This is possible, but one of the reasons I speak to so many people on a daily basis about similar crashes is because there just some things authorities don't typically look into. Those possible factors can make a world of difference in getting folks the help they need.
I'll give an example. With a head-on collision, it's important to consider if the vehicles hit at an angle or were off-set in some way. That's because some vehicles are designed to make those impacts less severe by designing the body in a way which deflects the vehicles in such a collision. Some manufacturers, however, neglect to make these safety upgrades, causing some people to be seriously injured where they otherwise would have been more or less fine.
Did something like that happen here? I certainly couldn't say without thorough investigations of my own, but I doubt that answer would come from a typical police report, either. Further steps often prove crucial in getting folks the help they need, and I see no reason why this crash would be an exception.
