Commentary on Armando Torres Accident on I-10 in El Paso

Clearly there are a lot of lingering questions about this incident, and even months later it seems investigators aren't much closer to answering them. Why was the victim lying down on the road? Where did he come from before getting on the ramp? Is that area lit by streetlights? Were the truck's headlights on? Was the driver awake, alert, and paying attention to his surroundings?

That's just a handful of the questions that still need to be resolved by further investigation. I'm not coming down on police for not having all the answers, but I hope they're doing everything they can to get them.

I'm also not making any accusations or claiming to know something more than the news mentioned, but I think most people would agree that the victim's loved ones deserve to know what happened--and if anyone should be held accountable for the tragic damage done.
