Commentary on Brittnie Adaway, Sheilla Lavalle Car Accident in Orange County

When it comes to a tragic accident like this, it's crucial to consider some factors which authorities may overlook. As important as it is to look into things like alcohol, distraction, fatigue, medical emergencies, tire blowouts, and other possibilities, the crash itself is not always the only factor.

For example, a serious head-on collision can sometimes naturally result in serious or fatal injuries. Sometimes, however, evidence can show the crash should have been survivable. One thing to consider, then, is how well the cars performed in mitigating the severity of the collision.

Some modern vehicles have front ends which are specifically designed to deflect other vehicles in the event of a crossover wreck. Despite this tech being reasonable available to all manufacturers, however, many manufacturers still neglect to put these vital tools on their vehicles. As a result, it's their customers that pay the price for the oversights.

Maybe nothing like that happened here, but if authorities aren't including things like that in their investigations, I'd hesitate to believe the families affected by these awful events are getting the full story.
