Commentary on Car Accident on Monroe Road in Houston
It always stands out when a serious crash happens but only one person is seriously hurt or killed. There are certainly reasonable explanations for that, but it can sometimes be a sign there are more complex problems authorities are overlooking.
For example, an entirely survivable crash can turn deadly when someone has a defective airbag. An avoidable crash can become unavoidable if someone's anti-lock brakes malfunction. Maybe nothing like that happened here, but there's no doubt a family out there that deserves to know they're getting the whole story. Mechanical defects may be just one possibility, but it's an important one to consider after any deadly wreck.
