no way danny!!!why would someone go to jail for someone walking into their path when they are driving and following all rules. he was in his own world and didn't even use the crosswalk.it's sad what happened but it was an accident. just be happy he will live.

Any info on the story that people who were also at the gas station and witnessed the accident were then arrested after giving statements that blamed the officer? Them being charged with falsifying statements? About the officer making a coffee run and not being on the look out for a drunk walker (who was suppose to be located about 10 blocks south of where the accident happened)?

he needs to be suspended or taking off the force.i mean hes a cop in a cop car and he ran someone over.and either way if the kid was in the road or not, anyone driving should be looking at the road.it wasnt foggy or snowing,you can see someone walking at night even in "dark" clothes.Especially on main street where thier are street lights everywhere" and i guarntee he was fucking with his phone or computer not paying attention and looked up to late.witch is know excuse,but nothing will happen to him because this town is a joke.If i was that retard that got hit i would sue the shit out of someone

yes the cop did just run into the kid! That's what happens when the cop speeds up to avoid a red light and isn't watchin where he's going...... No worries though the cops already have it covered up so there not at fault!!!! as always!!!!!!

that is so not true...the cop car hit him on the left side of the car, not the right side.the kid was walkin to shell and was crossing the road in front of walgreens. if that was true that he walked into the car it would have hit him on the other side!!!! what the heck! why cant the cop just tell the truth!
That is called Jay walking! He was not on the cross walk, so maybe he learned his lesson

my brother lives with him.i got to meet him and his family.he seems like a nice guy.and none of the sh*t said about the cop sounds right.i agree where were headlights.pedestrians ALWAYS have the right away.who cares what he was wearing.also my boyfriend was HIT by a car flew up over it more than 10 or so feet in the air landed on his head.HE GOT UP AND WALKED AWAY.then there is this kid...i saw pictures...yea he "walked"into the car.you ppl are f*cking idiots if you think thats true.oh and to some of the ppl saying he didnt use a crosswalk, i bet you same morons dont either and that doesnt mean ppl deserve to get ran over.
