Frederick Dean Injured in Car Accident in Harris County, TX
Harris County, TX -- August 4, 2022, Frederick Dean was injured after an accident where where two vehicles collided on Kuykendahl.
Investigators said they were called out to the area of Kuykendahl Road and Waycreek Road at around 1:30 p.m. Their information identifies 67-year-old Frederick Dean as the driver of a GMC Sierra driving northbound. While doing so, a Chevy Tahoe apparently made an unsafe lane change, hitting Dean's vehicle. This resulted in Dean having incapacitating injuries, details say. The other driver wasn't hurt, but they may have been cited.
During daylight hours, how exactly does a driver fail to see someone in a situation like this? It wouldn't surprise anyone if it turned out they were on their phone—that's sadly too common. But what really concerns me is why the victim's injuries are apparently so serious.
If the details here are accurate, this roadway doesn't have that high of a speed limit. Not only that, but it appears the vehicle that made the lane change hit the right side of the victim's vehicle, not the driver's side. Most modern vehicles are built to withstand something like this. Was the victim not as seriously hurt as reports say? Did their airbags and seatbelts work properly? There could be a perfectly reasonable explanation here, but I learned a long time ago these kinds of red flags need to be looked into thoroughly so nothing important slips through the cracks.
