Hopefully it's true the injuries here were only minor. Too many officers end up putting their life on the line because someone can't bother calling a cab or ride-share after a night out. If this is yet another one of those times, then the Houston/Harris County area should have no shortage of officials looking to make sure there's some accountability for this senseless, easily avoidable accident.
