What about eye witness accounts? Why are you trying to protect this person that hit ms. Angelbeck?

Pat, There were no witnesses at the scene when I was there and the police weren't letting the media close at that time. A regional accident reconstruction team is still investigating the cause of the accident, so we will provide an update as soon as they can release that information. Thanks for the concern.
