Mayra Lisbeth Mendoza Loza Injured in Car Accident in Georgetown, TX
Georgetown, TX -- June 9, 2022, Mayra Lisbeth Mendoza Loza was injured following an accident where her vehicle was hit by another.
Public details provided by authorities indicate that the crash happened at South Austin Avenue and West 24th Street at around 1:12 p.m. 34-year-old Mayra Mendoza Loza was said to be the driver of a Chevy Suburban which was going southbound. Mendoza Loza reportedly waited to turn left onto West 24th, but traffic was backed up and a stationary driver waved her through. While making the left turn onto 24th Street, a northbound car then crashed into the right side of the Suburban.
Reports list Mendoza Loza as having incapacitating injuries while the driver of the sedan had non-incapacitating injuries. Right now, additional details are unavailable.
There are all kinds of things to look into after a crash, but most people understand the importance of things like cell phone records, speeds, witness statements, and other more obvious details. Here's something I'm betting most people overlooked. The injuries between the two drivers seems to have Ms. Mendoza Loza suffering the more severe injuries. The reports also suggest no one else besides those two were hurt. Why does this matter?
Look at it this way. The more seriously injured person, according to authorities, was in the larger vehicle. They were hit on a typical city road where the speed limit isn't that high, and there was traffic at the time. The victim was also on the opposite side of the vehicle from the impact. Despite all of these usually being in a driver's favor, this driver got the short straw. So what was different about this situation? Was it something the driver did or was doing? Or, did her vehicle not protect her as she would reasonably expect?
These are the kinds of questions that experienced investigators can answer, but there's no clear indication right now if anyone is even asking the proper questions.
