Map of the Area
The reports I've been seeing have shown a much darker picture than just a typical freak accident. C & V Automotive has reportedly failed to acquire a license to operate since 2014, and authorities found several safety violations upon investigating the shop. What this tells me is that there is a pattern of hazardous behavior associated with this shop, and it seems to have finally resulted in a terrible accident.
There needs to be a thorough investigation here to ensure that any and all necessary evidence is properly preserved. After such an egregious disregard for public safety, and since someone suffered the ultimate consequence of these actions, those responsible for this tragedy need to be held accountable. The family of the victim deserves to find justice.
