Jessie Manrique Killed in Car Accident in Harris County, TX

Harris County, TX -- October 2, 2022, Jessie Manrique was killed following an accident where Manrique's vehicle crashed off-road.

Officials said that the crash happened along the 21800 block North Freeway service road just after 3:00 a.m.

Jessie Manrique was said to be in a Dodge Ram pickup when the vehicle somehow lost control on the southboun service road. As a result, authorities said, the vehicle hopped the curb before crashing into a boulder. This sent the vehicle airborne, and it then overturned into a pole.

Manrique sustained fatal injuries as a result of the crash. It appears no one else was involved in the accident. Police say they believe that Manrique was not wearing a seatbelt and that the airbags did not deploy. Additional details are unavailable at this time.

Commentary on Jessie Manrique Car Accident in Harris County

Something that really stands out to me here are the claims of the victim not wearing a seatbelt and the airbags supposedly not deploying. Just to be clear, I have no specific information regarding this particular crash. That's going to depend on more thorough investigations. But with a crash this serious, how in the world do the airbags not go off? Would this woman still be alive had they gone off?

Furthermore, if some issue led to the airbags not going off, what are the odds the victim was wearing a seatbelt, but something went wrong there, too? I know some people think I'm just looking for something to blame, but I bring these possibilities up because it seems like no one else ever does. As important as it is to look into more common things, like alcohol or distracted driving, it's no less important to consider if some manufacturing issue led to fatal injuries.

Either way, the evidence is going to have the final word, and the victim's loved ones will be able to rest assured they got the whole story.
