Commentary on Car Accident at I-45 and FM 1960 in Harris County
With a crash like this, it may be important to look into factors other that what caused the crash itself. Something stands out to me here in that the only person hurt--reportedly seriously so--was the passenger of the first vehicle. Generally speaking, that person would have been in a safer spot, given that the passenger is on the opposite of the impact. This could just be dumb luck or perhaps someone not wearing a seatbelt. Other times, however, that can be a sign that something unforeseeable went wrong.
Did the airbags go off properly? Did the seatbelt work? Was the seat assembly intact? Is there something about this particular vehicle that makes things more dangerous for passengers? Likely or not, this is the sort of thing that shouldn't just slip under the radar. Hopefully experienced professionals were thorough here. Otherwise, it's possible there are more serious issues surrounding this crash which have yet to be addressed.
