Commentary on Moped, Truck Accident on State Road 32 in Boone County
I certainly can't say what happened here without more thorough investigations, but my concern is whether or not proper steps are being taken to actually investigate things thoroughly. Quite frankly, folks are quick to blame drivers of non-standard vehicles Mopeds, motorcycles, scooters, bicycles--people just assume they were being irresponsible. Maybe that happened here, but it's important investigators have the experience to put bias aside and let the facts speak for themselves.
