Joshua Kiesling Injured in Auto Accident on Glenwood Blvd in Tyler, TX

Tyler, TX — May 5, 2022, 35-year-old Joshua Kiesling and another person were seriously injured in a traffic accident on Glenwood Boulevard in Tyler.

Authorities say the incident happened around 7:45 a.m. on North Glenwood at West Gentry Parkway. Preliminary investigation suggests Kiesling was driving a Hyundai Elantra west on Gentry when he allegedly ran a red light at Glenwood. As the car passed through the crossroads it collided with a southbound Chevy Suburban that reportedly had a green light.

Kiesling and the Chevy driver both suffered serious injuries in the crash.

No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Joshua Kiesling Accident in Tyler

Preliminary reports seem to have a rough sketch of what happened here, but if I've learned anything over decades in this field it's that a once-over from police doesn't always account for the many contributing factors and important details of a collision. I don't want to knock the hard work of experienced and dedicated officers, nor argue with police findings in Tyler; I can only say that experience has shown me that competing priorities and limited resources often stop them from fully exploring a crash's potential factors before they put down a "good enough" story and move on. Clearly an incomplete or incorrect report from authorities can be a major problem for people searching for answers or help in a crash's aftermath.

I'm not accusing Tyler officials of botching their investigation, but saying someone just ran a red light without looking into the reasons or context of that decision could be a slippery slope toward blaming someone unfairly for a wreck that was out of their hands. To be sure the truth is learned and the right parties (if any) are held responsible, maybe someone else with more time, training, and tools should revisit this matter and see if anything crucial slipped through the cracks.
