Commentary on Alfredo Escalante Car Accident in Los Fresnos

Something that people don't always consider in these situations is that they are preliminary even for the authorities. Here, they take this crash to speak about the importance of seatbelts. I don't disagree with that sentiment at all. But in the past, I've seen incidents where police said someone wasn't wearing a seatbelt only for more thorough investigations to prove otherwise.

Sometimes, things fail such that they render a seatbelt useless even when the victim did everything right. Is that common? Not relatively speaking, but it's a lot more common than folks may realize. That's why it's always important to consider who is looking into a deadly crash, what they're looking into, and whether or not they're getting a victim's loved ones the answers they deserve. I see no reason why this crash would be an exception to that.
