Woman Injured in Car Accident on Randol Mill Road in Fort Worth, TX

Fort Worth, TX -- April 13, 2022, one woman was injured after an accident where a pickup rear-ended a car on Randol Mill Road.

Authorities were called to the area of Randol Mill Road and Bridgewood Drive at around 2:48 p.m.

It appears that 32-year-old Erick Demont Ellis was driving a Fiat 124 Spider along Randol Mill. While doing so, it appears a Chevy Silverado followed too closely and rear-ended Ellis's Fiat.

A woman in Ellis's Fiat was said to have incapacitating injuries due to the crash. Authorities did not say that Ellis was injured. Right now, additional details are unavailable.

Commentary on Car Accident on Randol Mill Road in Fort Worth

Folks tend to look at rear-end collisions like open-and-shut, run-of-the-mill situations. That can be true, but thorough independent investigations aren't necessary due to the complexity of every crash. They're necessary due to the possible complexities that authorities tend to overlook.

For example, something that stands out to me here is that apparently only one person was said to be injured--seriously so, according to officials. Why is that? Was it just dumb luck? Failure to wear a seatbelt? Or, was there something wrong with the vehicle she was in? Did the airbags go off? Did the seatbelt function properly? Was there something called a "seatback failure" that rendered her seatbelt useless?

Likely or not, there are factors which can make what should be simple situations far more challenging to address. I can't say what happened here, but I can say there are red flags I wouldn't dream of ignoring. Hopefully this crash received attention from equally thorough professionals. If not, it's likely not too late to ensure the right people look into what all happened here.
