Justin Abshire Injured in Car Accident in Jefferson County, TX
Jefferson County, TX -- December 27, 2022, Justin Abshire was injured following an accident where multiple vehicles collided.
Reports on the crash said that the incident happened at around 2:00 p.m. along I-10 near Hamshire. The series of events was said to start with a collision involving a Land Rover and another vehicle which left the scene. A chain reaction then occurred involving at least seven other vehicles.
Sources identified the driver of a Ford pickup involved as 39-year-old Justin Abshire. Abshire was apparently the only one transported to the hospital following the wreck. Injuries were not specified. there may be further details forthcoming, but there could be complex issues here which warrant more thorough investigations. There's a specific detail which raises these concerns for me.
Put simply, when only one person is hurt in a multi-vehicle wreck, it can be a sign there was some unusual factor that caused those injuries. Could this just be dumb luck? Sure. Could there be reasonable explanations for the disparity in injuries? Absolutely. But let's say, for example, the only reason one person was hurt was because they had a defective airbag. That happened in a situation a colleague and I were discussing recently. Was it the police that caught that issue? No--it was independent investigators who had more experience and better equipment.
That's why I can't help being concerned reading about a crash which others may not see as a big deal. Maybe nothing unusual happened here, but I don't see why the evidence can't be allowed to speak for itself.
