It was all caught on camera…
The question that one has to ask is: ‘Was he drunk, sick, or tired?’ Nobody’s entirely sure what was happening with the driver who caused the five-car Buford Connector collision last month, but a news truck just happened to be there to record it. The news crew found a man who was slumped and drooling over the wheel of his pickup truck. This truck was blocking traffic, so 911 was called. A Department of Transportation worker removed the keys from the ignition.
As the DOT worker was trying to remove the keys, the driver came to and tried to leave the scene. There were two cars blocking his passage, and that caused a five car pileup. Fortunately, nobody was badly hurt. The transportation worker drove to the new accident and took the unidentified driver’s keys. The driver became belligerent, escaping the truck and trying to flee the scene. He ran over to a fence on the side of the road and was caught climbing the fence when the police arrived. He escaped from the police and was still running a few days later.
It is terribly unfortunate for the driver of the vehicle that the entire incident was caught on film. There are still questions related to the accident which might need to be answered. these types of questions are ones which a car accident attorney could ask if they were defending this man in court.
The truth is, there are many circumstances which lead to car wrecks. Someone might be tired, under the influence of alcohol, perhaps even have vehicle malfunction. The types of accidents which are outlined above need to be thoroughly explored as to their causes before judgments are made.
