Linda Sampson, James Sampson Injured in Car Accident in Harris County, TX
Harris County, TX -- June 5, 2022, Linda Sampson and James Sampson were injured after an accident where two vehicles collided.
Preliminary information provided to the public indicates that the incident happened at around 3:00 p.m. at the intersection of Katy Fort Bend Road and Morton Ranch Road.
It appears that 75-year-old James Sampson and 72-year-old Linda Sampson were in a Chevy Silverado traveling northbound along Katy Fort Bend Road. As they made a left turn, they were hit head-on by a southbound Ford F-150.
Linda Sampson's injuries were said to be incapacitating while James's were non incapacitating. It appears the other driver wasn't hurt.
Something that always strikes me as odd when I see it is when there is a disparity in the injuries between the people involved. These are similar vehicles crashing not-quite head-on, yet only people in one of the vehicles were hurt. What could that mean?
It could just be down to dumb luck or other perfectly reasonable circumstances. Other times, though, it's a serious sign that something in their vehicle didn't live up to the standards of modern vehicle safety. Seatbelts, airbags, crumple zones, seat assemblies, other hazards built into the vehicle—I'm always much more comfortable after a crash like this when I know the investigators are looking into these things to ensure nothing important slips through the cracks.
