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.
