Trevis Laquinn Sample Jr., Austin Woman Injured in Car Accident in Stafford, TX

Stafford, TX -- July 17, 2022, Trevis Laquinn Sample Jr. and another driver were injured due to an accident where their vehicles collided.

Investigators were called to the intersection of Texas Parkway/Fm 2234 and Adams Street just after noon.

According to preliminary details, 21-year-old Trevis Sample Jr. was driving a Toyota Venza southbound along FM 2234. While crossing Adams Street, investigators believe that an eastbound Hyundai Tucson, driven by a 28-year-old Austin woman, failed to yield, resulting in a collision.

Sample was said to have incapacitating injuries due to the crash while the woman's injuries were described as less serious. Additional details are unavailable at this time. One detail which police may overlook, and one which I've found to be crucial in these situations, is why exactly there's a disparity in injuries here. Why do I say this?

The collision described here puts the more seriously injured person (according to the authorities, anyway) as crashing into the driver's side of the vehicle driven by the person whose injuries were apparently not as severe. The latter would likely have been closer to the point of impact, and modern vehicles should generally be able to handle a front-end impact. So what was different here that someone had "incapacitating injuries"?

Did authorities look into the condition of the car? Did the crumple zone function properly? Did the airbags go off? Was the seat assembly intact? Did the seatbelt stay on? I've often seen these kinds of details go entirely overlooked, so forgive me for wondering if they're getting proper attention here.
