Leon and the BMW's two occupants suffered serious injuries in the wreck.

Commentary on Sharahi Leon Accident in Harris County

One thing I run into a lot after accidents like this one is people mistakenly believing preliminary reports have the whole story. "Someone ran a red light," they argue, "so what else is there to know?" I always suggest an open mind and patience when I hear things like that, and this crash is no exception.

People would be unpleasantly surprised to learn how often police at the scene overlook or never even think to check critical details after a crash. I've lost count of the times we revisit an accident at the victim's request, only to find it was caused by something wholly different than preliminary police findings suggested. Consider the GM ignition switch recalls a few years ago; how many people were unfairly blamed for causing those crashes, only for closer investigation to learn they had little to no control over what happened?

So is it possible that a simple but costly driver mistake caused this crash and everyone's injuries? Of course. Is it also possible there's more to the story that was missed during a "by the book" once-over from police? Absolutely. If there's any confusion or doubt about the events on Beltway 8, maybe an independent professional should look again for anything that slipped through the cracks.
