Patriots rookie LB Harvey Langi and wife get out of hospital after car accident

New England Patriots rookie linebacker Harvey Langi and his wife were both seriously injured in a car accident and had to be hospitalized. Though they’re a ways from being 100 percent healthy again, things are looking up.

“Harvey Langi and his wife were released from the hospital yesterday,” wrote Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal on Monday.

Reports from the crash site indicate that the couple was rear-ended by a Jeep. They were sitting in traffic at a left turn light, stopped behind a Toyota, when the Jeep slammed into the back of their Mazda. The police have been working to reconstruct the accident and find out why the driver hit them. They have speculated that he may have been distracted, though the latest reports showed that no charges had yet been filed. They may be after the police are sure of what happened, but they did say that Langi and his wife were not at fault in the crash.

“We’re trying to determine why he didn’t stop,” said police chief William Baker, per Marie Szaniszlo of the Boston Herald. “One might conclude he should have been in the through lane. It appears there had to be an element of distraction. Clearly, the drivers of the two cars that were struck from behind are not at fault.”

Langi played his college ball at BYU. As it’s his rookie year in the NFL, his snaps have been very limited. He played against the New Orleans Saints and recorded one tackle.
