Commentary on David Scott Graham Car Accident in Midland County

This is clearly an awful event, and if the mistakes supposedly leading to the crash are accurate, then there certainly should be appropriate consequences. But that's something folks generally understand, what may make things a bit more complex is finding out if any other factors contributed to this tragic accident.

For example, a t-bone collision like this, while certainly serious, doesn't have to be fatal. That's especially considering the victim was on the opposite side of their vehicle from the impact. Maybe high speeds were involved here, but most modern vehicles are well designed for an impact like this. Was this a survivable crash? If so, did something fail to protect the victim? Were there side curtain airbags? Did the vehicle hold up properly? Did seatbelts and the seat assembly itself work properly?

While relatively uncommon, possible defects are incredibly serious, and they rarely get any attention from authorities. Put simply, any possible contributing factor warrants investigations to ensure victims and families are getting the full story. Whether or not that ever happened here remains to be seen.
