Commentary on Hinda Hirse Accident in Harris County
Police couldn't figure out who ran a red light, and it doesn't seem like either driver copped to it. That may mean this ends up like many other investigations where authorities wash their hands of it and tell the people involved to figure things out themselves. In the end finding the truth in those matters sometimes takes independent investigations to find what law enforcement missed.
If such an investigation happens, hopefully those experts will also look at the greater context of the accident and whether the victim's injuries were worse than they really had to be. Often overlooked after these crashes are possible design flaws, malfunctions, or defects in a vehicle that end up causing (or failing to prevent) harm to its operator.
