Commentary on Franklin Vince Flores Mafnas Car Accident in Kirby

I always tell folks that no car crash should be treated as straight-forward or simple. Even if they turn out that way, one must be prepared for incredibly complex factors, regardless of how likely they may be.

For example, I was just discussing recent with a colleague about an issue I rarely see authorities talk about. It involves collisions much like this one where vehicles crash at an angle rather than broadside or head-on.

The reason this stands out is because some manufacturers over the years learned how to build their cars such that they effectively deflect the vehicles away from each other, decreasing the severity of the impact--at least up to a certain speed.

Other manufacturers, though, continue to neglect these improvements despite them being relatively simply to install. If there's a manufacturer that neglects to take reasonable steps to prevent injuries that could have been avoided in their competitor's vehicles, that's an issue they need to be held accountable for.

Again, this isn't that common, and I have no evidence right no saying it happened here. But it's one of many possibilities that tend to slip through the cracks, and I can't help wondering if such factors ever got the proper attention here.
