Thank you just me. I didn't know him or his family either. I just wanted to clear the record for the ones assuming what happened. Trying to say he was drunk or texting on his cell. or badgering him because he was a state trooper. Yes I get the fact that not all cops are good cops. And yes he was wrong for speeding and talking on the phone. But nobody can say they haven't done it either. And technically he wasn't the only one at fault. The tow truck driver has certain things he has to go by. And he broke one by making the uturn without permission first. But I don't blame him either. He made a honest mistake and I am sure he is beating himself up over it because someones life was taken. And unless you know the facts or actually know the cop himself where do you people have the right to assume it? Because he's a cop and you just assume all cops are bad? His family are grieving right now. And especially his wife who also watched it happen. She was in a car behind him. So I am sure people trying to say he was drunk or on pills is the last thing she needs to hear right now. I have not seen one bad thing said at all about this man. Or the work he has done. He is just a average citizen just lime anybody else, who chose to be a cop. And for him doing that doesn't give anyone the right to judge him, just because you think all cops are horrible.

In my opinion, it is the police on the scene responsibility to secure the scene. Which to me, would mean stop traffic and make it safe for emergency personnel to enter and exit the scene. Just because the tow truck was loaded doesn't mean the he should have been own his own to leave the scene safely. Police should have stopped traffic to allow him to clear the scene safely. It sounds like police didn't do their job, and putting the blame somewhere else, but I wasn't there, so that's just my opinion.

Tow truck was loaded, was the cop?
