Commentary on Car Accident on US 290 at Pinemont in Houston

It's not often that a car hits the back of a pickup, and the pickup driver is worse for wear--especially considering the driver of the car apparently wasn't hurt. This concerns me because one sometimes sees this result in an unusual situation involving a seatback failure.

This is something I discuss more thoroughly in this article here, but the basic idea is that seats sometimes fall or break during a collision when they should remain upright. As a result, folks sustain serious injuries they otherwise could have avoided in a safer vehicle. Could it be that something like that happened here? It would be a shame if no one looked into things further.
