2 Killed, 1 Injured in Head-on Car Accident on Highway 105 in Montgomery County, TX

Montgomery County, TX -- December 11, 2022, two people were killed and one was injured following an accident where vehicles crashed head-on.

Authorities said they were called out to the area of Highway 105 and Walker Road at around 1:30 a.m. It appears that a car may have crossed the center line, crashing "nearly head-on" into an oncoming vehicle. Two people in the car died as a result. One person from the other vehicle reportedly was in critical condition. No further information about the crash is available at this time.

Commentary on Head-on Car Accident on Highway 105 in Montgomery County

With crashes this serious, my main concern is usually if the crash is getting the attention it deserves. Simply put, authorities have a lot of priorities, and accident reconstruction isn't always high on that list. As such, they can miss complex factors that can contribute to serious wrecks like this.

For example, it stands out to me that reports called the collision "nearly head-on." Something I rarely see people discuss is the issue some manufacturers have with building their vehicles to better withstand these kinds of impacts. Some companies made the necessary improvements such that their vehicles are better at deflecting the impact and protecting the driver. Other manufacturers, however, would rather risk their customers than spend the time, money, and effort making these changes.

I'm not saying that happened here, but it is a possibility, and it's an example of something that independent investigators are for more effective at looking into. Perhaps their efforts will prove necessary for finding out what all happened here.
