Aciel Fernandez Killed, 2 Injured in Car Accident in Austin, TX

Austin, TX -- February 21, 2023, Aciel Fernandez was killed and two were injured due to an accident where multiple vehicles crashed.

Investigators said that the incident happened just after 7:30 a.m. at the intersection of East Anderson Lane and Cameron Road. The exact cause of the crash is unclear at this time.

Authorities said only that three vehicles collided. A passenger in one of those vehicles, 40-year-old Aciel Fernandez, sustained fatal injuries due to the crash. Two other people, also said to be passengers in Fernandez's vehicle, were taken from the scene with injuries said to be critical.

It appears no one else was hurt. There are no additional details about the crash available at this time. I can't help wondering if continued investigations will show something incredibly unusual contributed to the crash. Why is that?

What stands out to me is that the only people hurt were passengers in one of the vehicles. Is that true? Were all the drivers more or less fine? Why does it matter if that's what happened? While not always true, specific people being hurt or killed in a crash where others are fine can be a sign something which was supposed to protect those victims failed to do so.

Did authorities look at seatbelts here? Airbags? The condition of the vehicles? The seat assemblies? These are all things which can fail and therefore cause a crash that should be minor or moderate to become far more severe. If nothing else, there are folks out there that deserve answers, and investigators need to ensure these questions are part of their process going forward.
