It's not that unusual there are so few details available mere hours after the deadly crash. Commercial truck wrecks can be incredibly complex between all the unique factors investigators have to worry about. Maintenance records, driver hours, speeds, cell phone usage, medical history, road conditions, other drivers that may have left the scene, lighting conditions, possible defects, training, etc. Even if something seems unlikely, any experienced accident reconstructionist will attest to how important it is to ensure nothing slips through the cracks.

Considering Houston is one of the busiest cities in the state in many respects, I can only hope authorities are able to dedicate the time, personnel, and tools to ensure they're giving this crash the attention it deserves. Otherwise, the victim's loved ones may find that getting answers is a much more challenging process than anyone should have to go through on their own.
