Carmelo Cristodulio Lopez, 2 Injured in Car Accident in Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX -- April 8, 2022, Carmelo Cristodulio Lopez and two others were injured after an accident where two vehicles crashed.

Investigators were called to the area of Coit Road and Clearsprings Road at around 5:30 p.m.

Officials said that 49-year-old Carmelo Cristodulio Lopez and two others were in a Ford Explorer traveling northbound along Coit. At the intersection, a pickup crashed into the back of Lopez's vehicle. As a result, Lopez sustained injuries said to be incapacitating. His passengers were said to have non-incapacitating injuries.

In statements, police say that the other driver claimed to have defective brake pads. It's unclear if this has been confirmed.

Commentary on Carmelo Cristodulio Lopez Car Accident in Dallas

It's frustrating when unusual claims of things like brake failure come up only for it to turn out that police just aren't taking things seriously. To be clear, it's unlikely this was some unforeseeable, one-in-a-million accident. The more likely explanations is either that the truck driver is lying or that the brakes were worn due to a lack of maintenance. But claims of defects need to be taken absolutely seriously.

If I had loved ones hurt by a crash, and it turned out it was because of some negligent manufacturer selling my family a dangerous product, I'd want to be sure they were held accountable. Not only should they face consequences, but that dangerous product would need to come off the streets before more people got hurt. Again, likely or not, it's important folks know they're getting the whole story. It's not clear if the right steps were ever taken here to get the facts.
