Commentary on Doug Noyes Jr. Semi-Truck Hit-and-run Accident in Medford
A hit and run is bad enough on its own, but the thought of someone in a massive truck capable of something like this is even more concerning. While police have yet to identify the driver, there's still hope so long as we keep these details in the public eye. Someone may yet come forward with helpful information.
That's what worked for us in a case we had a while back. A semi-truck caused a terrible fatal crash, and for some time authorities made no headway. After we recirculated the details, however, someone came forward. Of all people, it was the truck driver's girlfriend who had been in the truck at the time. She admitted that the driver left the scene because he was high on meth at the time and didn't want police to catch him. Thanks to her statements, resolutions were achieved that police alone couldn't get.
Whatever happened here, maintaining that vigilance will no doubt be of significant help in identifying the truck driver or company involved here. The community can band together and help support this man and his family, but at the end of the day, there's someone out there who needs to take responsibility for the burdens put on the victim and his loved ones.
