Commentary on Alfred Piretto Pedestrian Truck Accident in Franklin Square

There isn't much information about what happened here, so the last thing I want to do is jump to conclusions. Maybe the authorities know more than they're saying, but sometimes vague reports like this reflect how little the authorities actually know. Looking at this intersection, it appears to be a pretty busy area that has clearly marked crosswalks and traffic signals. One would think the facts would be clear, but it may surprise folks to see how often a seemingly straight-forward accident can cause problems.

I had one case, for example, where two drivers crashed, and both claimed the other driver ran the light. Police had too much to do and considered the incident a low priority, so they basically left the drivers to figure things out on their own. One of them brought us in, and it wasn't long until we found security footage from a nearby business clearly showing the other driver run the light. Sometimes, police just overlook evidence that may seem obvious to outside observers. But they don't always have the time, tools, or experience they need to really get answers. Again, maybe that's not true here, and the lack of information is solely on the news side. Whatever the situation, it's usually worth whatever steps to make sure a victim's loved ones are getting the answers they deserve.
