Commentary on Corey Augusta Brister Car Accident in Corpus Christi
Crashes like this stand out to me when it appears only one person was seriously hurt. It's one thing if someone is in a large truck, but two cars crashing and only one person seriously hurt? It could be dumb luck or failure to wear a seatbelt. It could also be a sign something didn't work right. Seatbelts, airbags, brakes, seat assemblies, crumple zones--manufacturers make mistakes, and that can cause people to be seriously injured when they'd otherwise be more or less okay. Are steps being taken to consider such possibilities here?
