Commentary on Omie Harris McKnight Car Accident in Guadalupe County

I'm certainly not here to sit around speculating about the cause of the crash. I use crashes like this to shed lights on things people may not be too familiar with. In these details, I couldn't help noticing that the only person seriously hurt, according to authorities, as the person farthest from the point of impact. That can happen for all kinds of reasons, but the concerning possibilities are that a safety feature failed.

Seatbelts, airbags, seat assemblies, the structure of the vehicle itself--if something fails to prevent serious injuries, then it's possible someone's harm was more the result of a manufacturing issue than the crash itself. I don't bring this up to say I think it happened here. Rather, I bring it up because I rarely see authorities actually look into those possibilities. Could it be they overlooked something important here?
