Commentary on Albert James Baker Car Accident in Kilgore
When it comes to a situation like this, I can't help wondering if there is a lot more to the story than we're getting. The person hit in the rear being apparently seriously injured while the other driver appears to be unscathed isn't all that common.
A lot of times, something happened that authorities failed to mention, such as the victim's car overturning or hitting a pole. However, it can sometimes be a sign something more serious happened, such as a faulty airbag or a failed seatbelt. Has anyone looked into that here? It's possible that the victim would have been okay in a different vehicle, and that's never something to take lightly. That's especially true if a manufacturing issue could be out there continuing to put lives at risk.
