One person has died in a car crash in Nolanville, according to Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Sgt. David Roberts.

Troopers were notified about the crash at 2:15 p.m. Friday, but it may have happened days earlier, on the Nolanville hill on U.S. Highway 190/Interstate 14.

"A 2008 Chrysler 300 passenger car lost control, ran off the roadway, struck a tree and fell down into a ravine," according to a a release from DPS. "The driver of the vehicle was Delettra Whittman, 51, of Belton.  Whittman was pronounced dead at the scene." 

Whittman had been reported missing after leaving Nolanville Wednesday and never arrived at her destination in Belton, according to DPS. 

A family member found the crashed vehicle Friday and notified the authorities. The eastbound side of the roadway is still currently blocked for the removal of the crashed vehicle.

I'm dreadfully sorry for the loss of that poor lady's life. Her family must feel horrible about the fact she was out there for days before she was discovered.
The photo at the top of this story, however, shows an increasingly unnecessary trend exercised by law enforcement.
Why do the police think they need to shut down an entire roadway for a wreck that is not even on the roadway? They didn't use to do that. More and more they hinder hundreds of people for hours at a time for no other reason than they want to flaunt their authority.
Yes, sometimes there is a need to reroute traffic or even stop it while a lane is cleared of debris but there is absolutely no justification for shutting down a major artery for hours at a time.
