Lauren Burgess Injured in Auto Accident on Fairbanks North Houston Rd in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — August 31, 2022, 31-year-old Lauren Burgess was seriously injured in a car accident on Fairbanks North Houston Road in Harris County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 10:00 a.m. on the 6300 block of Fairbanks North Houston at U.S. Highway 290. Preliminary investigation suggests a Chevy 3500 box truck was traveling north on the roadway as Burgess drove a Nissan Rogue south nearby. Investigators alleged she turned left at US-290 but disregarded the intersection's light, causing the turning SUV to be hit on its passenger side by the Chevy.

Burgess suffered serious injuries in the crash. The truck driver reportedly received possible injuries.

No further information is currently available.

I don't have any particular reason to argue with police about how this unfortunate crash happened, but I do still have some questions. For instance, it looks from reports like multiple airbags deployed in the Nissan and the driver was properly restrained, yet somehow despite those she ended up with injuries police called "incapacitating." If the truck hit the SUV's passenger side and the victim's safety devices activated, those don't seem like circumstances that should have ended so badly. Is there more to the story here?
