Tabatha Washington Injured in Rollover Crash on Bonnie View Rd in Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX — March 25, 2022, 40-year-old Tabatha Washington and two children were injured in a car accident on Bonnie View Road in Dallas.

According to reports the incident happened around 6:15 p.m. on Bonnie View near 56th Street. Preliminary investigation suggests Washington was driving a Nissan Sentra north on the roadway behind a Ford Expedition. A third vehicle passed them and allegedly cut the Ford off, causing both the Ford driver and Washington to brake hard and veer left to avoid a crash.

The Nissan swerved left and ran up the median curb, then overturned and rolled several times before coming to rest in the southbound lanes of Bonnie View.

Washington suffered serious injuries in the accident. Two children in her car ages 7 and 6 reportedly received minor injuries.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Tabatha Washington Accident in Dallas

If reports have their facts straight it sounds like a reckless driver sent the victim off-course and caused her crash. If so I hope that person remained at the scene and owned up to the damage their carelessness caused (though cynically I rather doubt it).

However, I can't help but wonder if the driver's bad behavior is really the whole story. It's troubling to see the victim's car overturned and rolled simply from hitting a curb. I wasn't there and didn't see how things went so maybe that's reasonable, but the speed limit along Bonnie View is 40mph and a Sentra should reasonably be expected to stay upright at that speed. Why didn't it this time?

One possible explanation is that it was designed or built in a substandard or defective manner. I'm not saying I know the vehicle has problems, but it's more common than people think in the automotive market. Click below to learn more about vehicle defects and their role in many auto accidents.
