Timothy Frankel Injured in Auto Accident on Barker Cypress Rd in Harris County, TX

Harris County, TX — September 8, 2022, 72-year-old Timothy Frankel was injured in a traffic accident on Barker Cypress Road in Harris County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 8:40 p.m. on Barker Cypress near Clay Road. Preliminary investigation suggests a Chevy Tahoe was southbound in the left lane of the roadway as Frankel drove a Cadillac sedan north nearby on the other side. Investigators allege he turned left toward a local parking lot but failed to yield to the Tahoe; the SUV's front-left quarter collided with the car's front-right quarter. After the impact both vehicles traveled south a short distance and the Chevy crashed into a tree.

Frankel was seriously injured in the collision and was taken to a hospital. Reports indicate one person in the Tahoe received minor injuries.

No further information is currently available.

I have no reason to argue with investigators about this crash supposedly happened, but even if they got the cause right I'm a little confused about its aftermath—specifically the victim's reportedly-serious injuries. How did a driver with a fastened seat belt and multiple airbag deployments get so banged up when his car made contact only on a corner of the passenger side?

I'm not saying police got anything wrong, just wondering if there's a little more to the story than they accounted for at the time. Whether the explanation for the victim's injuries is simple or complex, I think it's important for his sake to look more closely and figure it out. He deserves to know the whole story of how he ended up in a hospital that day; I just hope authorities make sure he gets it.
