    I don't understand why they have to shutdown the entire freeway when people die. The person is dead no point in wasting hours of other peoples lives. Just move the cars out of the way and let's get on with life.

    I think the investigation and cause of death is more important than you getting to work on time. You know, those people have families who still have their lives and will want to seek compensation from insurances or at least justice for the one who caused/killed their loved one.

    This is what's wrong with people today, its a selfish hypocritical society.

    I see people drinking beers while driving near Bellaire more often than I would like to see.

    I can understand investigating, but they close the freeway for like 4 hours. What exactly is there left to investigate?

    Please forward this sentiment to any investigators tasked with working any tragic and unfortunate events tied to Air Langhi and/or his loved ones.

    Let them know that he would like everyone to just "get on with life".

    1. Someone died
    2. The charged woman could potentially be in jail for the rest of her life so yeah, I think taking there time to investigate/gather envidence would be beneficial.

    That comment along with Air Langhis in the thread are by far the most ignorant comments I have read this year. FTW loser FTW is constantly making some stupid comments though. I wonder if that guy has a life outside of his moms basement.

    My brother works auto-related fatalities for HPD. From what he tells me, they are very thorough but are under constant pressure to expedite their investigations

    I'll have to ask him as I really don't know.

    CSB alert:

    Early on in his stint with the accident division, my brother worked a case where a motorcyclist was blindsided while exiting a freeway. I can't remember the details anymore, but the poor guy ended up at Ben Taub where I was working trauma overnight. Unfortunately, we had to give him a below-the knee-amputation of one of his legs.

    A few days into the guy's recovery, I run into my brother and we realize that we were working the same case. Sad as it was, it was very interesting to see our polar opposite worlds intersect.

    What I'll never forget was that the guy and his wife were pretty positive about everything, considering the circumstances. At first I thought it was just an initial reaction, but they kept fighting on through the ~2 weeks that I was treating him. Really inspirational stuff.

    And how long does it take a team to mobilize and get on site?

    Surely, when a site is closed for 4 hours, it doesn't equate to 4 hours of forensics. There's time before the investigation starts and time to clear the scene, too.

    Good point. Especially if the dead person is just laying on the ground in one of the lanes. They're dead, just let the other cars run over them and gradually have them disintegrate. That would save emergency responders' time, burial costs, commuters' time, etc. Just get on with life.

    I would hope that having two young children in the car isn't the only reason she was charged with felony murder. That's what the news report made it sound like. She was intoxicated and fled other accidents before this one. She should be charged with felony murder regardless of if children were in her car.

    Or she could be given a harsher punishment and get on with her afterlife.

    Are all murders not felonies? This lady was committing a felony (DWI with children in the car) when she was involved in the hit and run and then killed the motorcyclist. Pretty schitty day, lady
