Cardale Devonta Gamble Killed in Pedestrian Accident in Harris County, TX
Harris County, TX -- December 17, 2022, Cardale Gamble was killed after an accident where multiple vehicles struck him.
Authorities said that the incident happened along the southbound North Freeway service road just off Airtex Boulevard at around 10:30 p.m.
According to officials, 28-year-old Cardale Gamble was in a vehicle and parked in a parking lot along the freeway. While looking for something outside the vehicle, police say a passenger in Gamble's vehicle began to drive off. As Gamble pursued the vehicle on foot, he may have been hit by the back tire, causing him to fall in the roadway. Following this, multiple vehicles then struck Gamble, resulting in fatal injuries.
Police say that only one driver stayed at the scene. Three others are at large, including the vehicle Gamble had been in. The only vehicles described in the accident were a black Jeep Renegade and a white Chevy Impala. Those vehicles, however, have details suggesting authorities know who the owner is, so it's unclear exactly who did or didn't leave the scene.
That last hurdle is what makes me concerned about this incident. There seemed to be so much information leading up to the incident, though there are obviously a lot of unanswered questions surrounding that unusual chain of events. But other details surrounding the accident seem disorganized and imprecise. It could be authorities were so busy with one aspect of the investigation that they weren't able to clearly investigate other parts. But especially since there are drivers out there that need to answer for their role in this event, shouldn't every step be taken to get all of the facts surrounding this?
