Commentary on Janice Thomas Car Accident in Mansfield

Regardless of what exactly led to this crash, there's something I've been talking about a lot more recently because I find that authorities almost never look into certain factors they deem to be unlikely. When a collision happens at an angle like this, it sometimes results in far more serious injuries than it needs to. Could it be the vehicles involved here weren't built to as a high a standard as they could've been?

Some manufacturers found that they can build their cars such that angled impacts like the one described here can be redirected, deflecting the impact rather than putting it into the cab where it can seriously harm drivers and passengers. But because these techniques aren't literally required, some manufacturer neglect to make these changes. Just because it's legal, though, doesn't mean they're off the hook for failing to install reasonable features to better protect their customer.

I certainly can't say if anything like that happened here without more thorough investigations. I simply wish to illustrate to folks why a crash like this is rarely as simple as it may seem. Taking steps to have the right people look into things can be crucial for getting folks the answers they really deserve.
