Roger Gomez Fuentes, 2 Injured in Car Accident in Harris County, TX

According to officials, 28-year-old Roger Gomez Fuentes was in a Hyundai Elantra traveling westbound along Windfern. From behind, a Chevy Malibu crashed into the back of Gomez Fuentes's vehicle. This caused Gomez Fuentes and two passengers to have incapacitating injuries. The driver of the Chevy was not said to be injured.

While I can't confirm any of the information about this crash without more thorough accident reconstructions, one detail stood out to me. The driver of the Chevy apparently told authorities their brakes "didn't engage all the way." To be perfectly blunt, it is pretty darn unlikely this was the result of brake failure as opposed to something more common like speeding or cell phone usage. However, it's important those claims are taken seriously. If some unusual defect led to this crash, it wouldn't be the first time. It likely wouldn't be the last. Since authorities didn't elaborate on this, however, I can't help wondering if they had the tools or training to look into such an unusual claim. Perhaps something important slipped through the cracks that the victims and families involved need to hear.
