Commentary on Alison Drew Schaeler Car Accident in New Braunfels
Something that stands out to me is authorities saying one person had serious injuries while no one else appeared to be hurt. That can happen for many reasons, but perhaps most concerning is the possibility some safety feature malfunctioned. Seatbelts, airbags, seating assemblies, car body integrity--if something that should have protected the victim failed to, could others be at risk? Perhaps another look into the details here could shed light on something authorities failed to address.
