Commentary on Carlos Reyes Single-Vehicle Accident in Midland

While I don't have any specific information about this crash beyond what's available to the public, I always take early details about deadly car accidents like this with a grain of salt. Why is that? Put simply, authorities have a lot on their plates, and their departments don't always prioritize accident reconstruction highly enough to keep important information from slipping through the cracks.

For example, I always make sure to be thorough when it comes to be supposedly not wearing their seatbelts. That's obviously a common reason someone would be thrown from a vehicle, but I've found the amount of times police see something like this and just assume the victim wasn't wearing a seatbelt doesn't add up. Seatbelts can fail. They can break, come unlatched, or otherwise fail to do their job properly, leading to someone dying in what should have been a survivable crash.

I'm not saying that happened here, of course, but it's a possibility that, in my experience, is best handled by independent accident reconstructionists. Their efforts here could show that something unusual led to this tragic event, and that would be something the victim's loved ones would deserve to know.
