Why Won’t The Police Investigate This Car Slamming Into a Cyclist On a Pedestrian Bridge? [VIDEO]
Isn't the pedestrian always right when a car hits them? And doesn't the fact that it happened on a pedestrian bridge support this more? A recently released video shows a SUV driving along a Norfolk pedestrian bridge, hitting cyclist Kelley Howell, and the police do not plan to do anything about it.
Should the employee (who is allowed to drive on this bridge) be fired for hitting Kelley Howell? Or, should the cyclist have been aware of the possibility of motor vehicles coming their way.
The employee has been placed on administrative leave while the accident is being investigated, by the Virginia Department of Transportation, but NOT the police.
In an article posted by The Inquisitr, the police had this to say:
they could not investigate because they were not called to the scene of the accident immediately following the collision.
I said, ‘I have video if you want to see,’ and he said, ‘Oh, why do you have video?’ And I explained that I use it to educate, and he said, ‘Oh maybe you were the person who caused the accident,’” Howell told Norfolk based ABC 13 regarding the bicycle incident.
Should the fact that neither person had a cell phone on them to call authorities have anything to do with the police investigating?
When watching the video did you also notice that the VDOT employee did not appear to slow down when he saw the cyclist? I'm not lawyer, but I see negligence here, do you?
