Commentary on Charles Niclas III Pedestrian Accident in East Windsor

There are some very important details these reports don't mention. Primarily, it's unclear if the truck went onto the shoulder and hit the victim. That seems to be the implication, but an implication just isn't enough when it comes to getting someone's loved ones the answers they deserve. I can't begin to count how many times folks have come to me over the years with reports which seemed straight-forward only for more thorough independent investigations to show that authorities missed something major.

Charles Niclas III Pedestrian Accident East Windsor, NJ

Did the truck hit something in the road? Was the victim standing across the fog line? Was there an issue with the roadway itself? Was the truck driver on their phone or fatigued? Were there other obstacles in the area that contributed to the accident? Were there any other reckless drivers involved that left the scene? Even if something may seem unlikely, getting answers means considering all of these possibilities. Getting folks the answers they need means taking steps far more extensive than just a preliminary police report. It remains to be seen if anyone is taking those steps here.
