It's encouraging anytime police note there are witnesses, but I'm always cautious about whether or not they kept up with those statements. Put simply, there is a big difference between police saying witnesses saw the crash and investigators having the ability to call those witnesses and ask for sworn testimony.

I've been in situations where authorities noted witnesses without actually recording their information. If weeks or months go by, those witnesses could be anywhere, and it's essentially up to luck that they see statements in the news and come forward. Making sure those witnesses are ready to tell their side of the story can be absolutely vital for victims and families who will no doubt be up against a company hoping those same witnesses don't get a chance to confirm what they told police at the scene. Were authorities here prudent enough to avoid such a big mistake?
