Commentary on Samuel Montoya Accident in Bryan

Police said the pickup driver's failure to control speed was the main reason for this accident, but what people don't always realize is that the cause of a crash and the cause of a victim's injuries aren't always the same thing. That's why it's important to investigate carefully and be sure all the crash's contributing factors are recognized.

For instance, did anyone check to see if the Impala's safety features all worked correctly during the collision? Many times over the years we've discovered that a collision was much worse than it had to be because airbags deployed late or not at all (or ejected metal shrapnel at the people they were supposed to protect), or because seat belts didn't tighten or broke at the buckle. Those are just some of the many defects and malfunctions we've found that were overlooked by police as their attention went only to figuring out who they could charge.

Maybe nothing like that happened here, but it seems like the people hurt in the crash deserve every answer they can get about what happened. If there's more to the story and police didn't find that out, should someone else take another look?
