Le was airlifted to Memorial Health in critical condition.

At the time, police said it would take a while to investigate this deadly crash. They said they wanted to be thorough.

"You want to do a good job so the victims' story is told, and there is some accountability," said Capt. Mike Maxwell of the Bryan County Sheriff's Department. "So we can tell we can tell the parents what happened with a high degree of certainty."
