Ricky Morris Injured in Paris, TX Car Accident on Clarksville Street

Paris, TX — February 23, 2022, 61-year-old Ricky Morris was seriously injured in a traffic accident on Clarksville Street in Lamar County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 12:50 a.m. on Clarksville Street near Southeast 33rd Street. Preliminary investigation suggests a Buick LeSabre was leaving the private drive of a local property at 3100 Clarksville when the driver allegedly failed to yield the right-of-way to Morris in an eastbound Toyota Camry. The Buick crashed into the Toyota's passenger side in the roadway.

Morris suffered serious injuries in the wreck. The Buick driver was reportedly unhurt.

Commentary on Ricky Morris Accident in Paris

Police chalked everything up to one driver's failure to yield to the other and don't seem to have thought much more about it. However, one thing people don't always realize is that the cause of a crash and the cause of someone's injuries in that crash aren't always the same. Could there be more to the story here than police realized at the time?

For instance: If reports have their facts straight then somehow the impact with the Toyota's unoccupied passenger side still managed to deal significant harm to the driver. Was the Buick driver really just booking out of that driveway, or did something else happen? Did the Toyota's safety measures--seat belt, airbags, crumple zones--fail or activate improperly (like when Takata airbags ejected sharp metal shrapnel while deploying)? Was the car in good repair? Did it have any active recalls on malfunctioning or dangerous parts?

Maybe there's no more to this than preliminary reports say, but it doesn't seem like they really cover all the bases as a thorough investigation should. Maybe looking closer didn't occur to police at the time, or perhaps they felt no need to for their purposes. Whatever the case may be, a second look from experienced professionals is often needed after these wrecks to be sure the whole truth is learned. If there are other steps to take, knowing so would depend on what that truth turns out to be.
