Nothing to see here, move along citizen...
We have put in an open-records request for the full report. We will write a follow-up story when we receive that.
The state allows public agencies to drag their feet on such requests for obviously open records. If you want the legislature to put more teeth in the state's open records and open meetings laws, please contact your legislator.
will vicad ever update this story ?
sounds like a cover up going on to me
waiting for updates
Are we to get the real truth to this story or is this another fox guarding the chicken house?
someone probably has to get their story straight
There has to be more to this story than they want to let out. If the guy on the motorcycle was at fault believe me the law enforcement would have made that clear and would have issued a statement to that fact. But when its on their foot they mum up and dont make comments.....
I hope this doesnt become a financial burden on the injured if its found to be the officers fault the state should take up responsibility immediately!!
word on the street is that it was the deputy who intentionally crashed into Hicks.
Inquirer, it may or may not be as you say,,,but what occurs to me is the fact, that of the many accident stories that we read daily in the Advocate, the investigator is always very quick to point out who is at fault, No?
This the second story relating to the terrible injuries suffered by this young man, and yet the cause of the accident has not been mentioned by the Department. It is guranteed that if indeed the accident was caused by the motorcyclist it would have been printed immediately.
Doesn't an accident that involves personal injury of a very serious nature now require the mandatory screening of the person at fault for alcohol or drugs?
Maybe this has caused the delay of the release of details.
Prayers for both involved.
I sincerely hope that the deputy involved was not "running hot" to some low-level call or something like that. Innocent motorists are injured all too often in situations like that. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Mr. Hicks.
Hang in there Todd! We are thinking about you! we luv ya!
