Commentary on Wilma Wallace Car Accident in Richardson
It's obviously important to find out what caused any given wreck, but things aren't always so simple. Odd as it may sound, the factors which caused the crash aren't always the same as the factors that caused the injuries. What do I mean by that?
I'll give an example. I was discussing a recent crash with a colleague in which a woman was texting and driving when she hit a semi-truck. As clear as that all seemed, investigations showed the impact was relatively minor. She should have been okay, but instead she was seriously injured. Why? As it turned out, she had a faulty airbag. That was something completely beyond her control, and it was something that required further steps to properly address.
When I see these details, I can't help wondering why one person was significantly injured while it appears the other person was unscathed. I'm not saying anything unusual happened--there are reasonable explanations why that can happen. But if steps weren't taken to ensure all the facts here were brought to light, more thorough investigations may show there's more to the story.
