Antonio Nino Leyva, 2 Injured in Car Accident in Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX -- August 17, 2022, Antonio Nino Leyva and two others were injured following an accident where a pickup and a car crashed.

Police officials said that it was around 8:45 a.m. when 68-year-old Antonio Leyva was in a GMC Sierra pickup stopped at the red light on southbound Walton Walker Boulevard at West Kiest Boulevard. After the light turned green, Leyva apparently began to move before a Kia Sorento slammed into the back of Leyva's pickup.

Due to the crash, Leyva and a passenger both had incapacitating injuries. The Kia driver's injuries were said to be non-incapacitating. Additional details about the crash cannot be confirmed at this time.

What really stands out to me here is the apparent disparity of injuries. There are certainly many factors worth looking into after a serious crash like this, but one question keeps burning in my head. Given the size difference of the vehicles and where the car hit the pickup, how is it the occupants of the pickup are worse off than the car driver? If the description of their injuries is true, that's pretty odd.

If someone asked me which vehicle I would rather be in during a crash like this, a pickup being hit from the back by a much smaller vehicle seems to be the best option. But if someone is seriously hurt regardless of those advantages, it could mean something went wrong. Did authorities look at the victims' seatbelts? Their airbags? Was there a seatback failure? Some other extenuating circumstances the victims couldn't avoid? Did the authorities even notice this unusual result, or is the explanation more simple than these sparse reports make it seem? Hopefully there were steps behind the scenes to make sure the victims involved here were getting the full story.
