Regina Neal Injured in Rollover Crash on Faught Rd in Northlake, TX

Northlake, TX — April 19, 2022, 25-year-old Regina Neal was seriously injured in a single-vehicle accident on Faught Road in Denton County.

According to reports the incident happened around 2:50 p.m. on Faught near Carpenter Road. Preliminary investigation suggests Neal was driving a Kia Spectra north on the 7500 block of Faught when she lost control for unknown reasons. The car veered off the road to the left and entered a ditch, at which point Neal over-corrected to the right. The Kia overturned and rolled several times, hitting a fire hudrant and a fence before coming to rest.

Neal was ejected in the rollover and suffered life-threatening injuries.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Regina Neal Accident in Northlake

Reports say the victim was speeding when she lost control. I have no specific reason to doubt that, but at the same time I've done this for long enough to take preliminary investigations with a grain or two of salt. Police sometimes miss important details while focusing too much on others, and there are times when they jump to conclusions the same as anyone else.

For instance, after ejection crashes law enforcement typically reports that the victim wasn't wearing a fastened seat belt. Some might consider that logical enough; if the victim was thrown from the vehicle how could they have been restrained? As it happens, vehicle parts (including safety equipment) fail at far more alarming a rate than people may realize.

Seat belts rip, fail to tighten, or come apart at the fasten point during many crashes, rendering them pretty much useless and making the damage done much worse than it realistically should have been. However, during their once-over of the scene police rarely bother to check if the belt is intact; once they see the victim out of the car they just tick the box that says they weren't buckled up.

I write all the time on this blog about the importance of getting all the details--particularly ones that are too often ignored. When an investigation isn't thorough enough some victims who deserve help don't get it even though their injuries were at least partly someone else's fault. Was proper care taken to find the whole truth after the Northlake crash, or is there more to the story that went undiscovered?
