tran·sient (tran′s̸h ənt,-sē ənt; -z̸hənt,-z ē ənt)

adjective

1.
1. passing away with time; not permanent; temporary; transitory
2. passing quickly or soon; fleeting; ephemeral
2. ☆ staying only for a short time: the transient population at resorts

Origin: L transiens, prp. of transire: see transit

noun

1. ☆ a transient person or thing: transients at a hotel
2. Elec. a temporary component of a current, resulting from a voltage surge, a change from one steady-state condition to another, etc.

So in this case the use of "Transient" is descriptive. basically, not local.

It'd be a much different story if the driver was drunk. Kinda like if it were a Koala bear driving. Usually, drinking is looked into rather quickly with a fatality accident... Moron.

What part of "waiting to notify next of kin" didn't you get when they withheld the ID info of the TRANSIENT.

The ID on this bloke was probably out of state, he likely had a backpack, sleeping bag, and other provisions lending to that notion.

Aren't we just the gossips?!

I don't think they are "prohibited from walking along the highway."

They identified him as a transient because when someone dies, the name of the town they are from follows. If the T-S just didn't identify his hometown, it would look like a badly researched news story.

This young man a son, brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend. His mother is my friend and coworker. He is loved and will definitely be missed. May the Divine Source have mercy on all of us.

Some of you people are seriously sick. Did you stop and think that this man was someone’s son, their brother their family? I bet it would be different if this were someone close to you. I met this man’s family last night and they described him as a traveler. He liked to get up and go places he wasn’t a drunk, or a drug addict he was just a wanderer. His family was very nice and very very hurt. I pray that none of them get on this site and see what has been said about him. And how do you feel about the impact of your words on Nico? Do you know Nico? Have you talked to him about what happened? This kid is messed up and probably will never be the same again. No he wasn’t drunk or impaired in any way. This was an ACCIDENT nothing more. Why don’t you fucks have a heart and put yourself in his shoes, or in those of the people this man left behind. And if you don’t have anything nice to say then you shouldn’t say shit. And hopefully nothing like this ever happens in your family.
