Commentary on Elaine Viney, Claude Crane III Car Accident in Harris County

It's not my place to sit around speculating about the cause of this crash, but something stands out to me, and I can't help felling concerned authorities may have overlooked something. It's not often that a t-bone collision happens and the person opposite the point of impact is killed while no one else is seriously injured (at least according to information I'm seeing right now). So what happened? Was it just dumb luck, or did something like a faulty seatbelt or defective airbag contribute to the crash?

Likely or not, these defect can happen, and they can result in fatal crashes where people otherwise would have been okay. That's not the kind of thing authorities tend to look into on their own, so there may need to be more thorough investigations to ensure the full story is brought to light here.
