Commentary on Rear-end Accident on Old Spanish Trail in Houston
It stands out anytime one person involved in a crash is significantly injured while it appears everyone else is okay. There are several reasons that can happen. Perhaps it's just dumb luck. Maybe the passenger didn't have their seatbelt on. More concerning, however, is the possibility that something which protected the driver failed to protect the passenger. Did their seatbelt stay locked? Did their airbag go off? Did their chair stay upright? If the victim would have been fine in a different vehicle, then steps may need to be taken to confront the manufacturer of whatever did cause these injuries.
