Two Critically Injured in Crash on Brentwood Stair Rd in Fort Worth, TX

Fort Worth, TX — August 2, 2022, two people were injured when a vehicle flipped over onto two parked cars on Brentwood Stair Road in east Fort Worth.

According to reports the incident happened shortly before 9:00 p.m. on the 6000 block of Brentwood Stair Road. Preliminary investigation suggests a woman was driving along the roadway when she lost control and hit a curb. It then vaulted forward, overturned, and landed on top of two vehicles parked nearby.

The woman and her male passenger were extracted from the upside-down car by firefighters. They were then transported in critical condition to different hospitals.

The crash remains under investigation. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Fort Worth Car Accident on Brentwood Stair

Police aren't sure yet how this crash happened, and in the absence of more clear answers I'd like to remind people that jumping to any premature conclusions doesn't help. That point typically falls on deaf ears when it comes to people who comment on news releases, as they're already wound up to throw out theories about the driver speeding or being drunk.

It's not that some factors (drinking, speed, fatigue, distraction) aren't common; it's more that nothing of the sort should be taken for granted. Careful investigation is needed after any crash to be sure the true story is learned. For all anyone knows right now the victims' vehicle just hit a wet patch of road, or a part might have been defective or failed. A crash caused by driver carelessness may look a lot like one caused by brake failure or traction loss, yet those are drastically different. That's why it's important to be thorough and let only the facts tell the story.

However, I've learned over the years that police investigations sometimes fall short of learning the whole truth. Their conclusions are often right, but I've worked on plenty of cases where people called us because they didn't agree with the "official" story. I typically recommend that independent investigators take a second look: Experts with the time, equipment, and training to do the job right are invaluable in making sure the truth is found and those hurt get any help they have coming to them.
