Felix Luna Injured in Auto Accident on I-45 in Ennis, TX

Ennis, TX — June 5, 2022, 55-year-old Felix Luna was seriously injured in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 45 in Ellis County.

According to reports the incident happened around 6:35 p.m. on I-45 near mile marker 248.

It came to rest on its roof.

Commentary on Felix Luna Accident in Ennis

Police think speeding was a key factor here, but I can't help but wonder if that's really the whole story. It often surprises people to learn that what causes an accident isn't always the same as what caused the victim's injuries. But how can those differ?

Here's a sad example from the firm's history: We learned some time ago about a man and his child getting into what by all accounts should have been a survivable accident. Tragically, though, the driver seat's backrest gave way during the impact and the man was thrown back with significant force. The seatback then struck and killed his child in the back seat. Whatever caused the crash, that child's fatal injuries were due to a faulty part in the car.

Defects like that too often go entirely overlooked as all eyes are focused on driver mistakes like speeding or texting. Bad airbags, faulty seatbelts, locked-up braking, loose seat assemblies, fuel tanks in dangerous places, tires that were poorly manufactured--these and many other things cause injuries and deaths every day all over the world, yet too often they get ignored. To make sure that doesn't happen it's crucial that investigators have the experience and tools to consider the whole picture. It's unclear whether that level of care was or will be taken here, but the reported story doesn't sound like it.
