I wonder what ever came of this issue. I actually snapped this photo a good number of weeks ago and just found it on my system. I really couldn't tell who's fault it was to tell you the truth.

Maybe I'm just a heartless prick, but there really didnt seem to be anything to stop for unless you like to watch fire.

someone could have stopped and heroically jumped out of their vehicle to try to pull the person out, don't know if I would have done it, but I certainly would have stopped and tried to help any way possible. On the topic of the cop car, from those pics it kinda looks like the car's driver rear tire is sitting on blocks. I know it's not, but that's what it looks like.

The news reports said that the driver was prone to seizures and that's what they think happened. They said he was doing about 65 mph when he hit. He was obviously killed instantly and could only be identified by dental records. The Cop on scene was sitting about 100 yards away doing Truck inspection checks. You can see him run up to the car but the heat was to intense. As for people just driving past it like it wasn't even there, thats Jersey for ya. Everybody always in a hurry.

Well, that makes sense becuase he didn't even hit the brakes. People often complain when they feel fine and think they can drive even if they have a history of seizures or narcolepsy or something like that. Bad things can happen. My wife's uncle had a diabetic seriure like 5 years ago and his son had to jump across the seat of the truck and hit the brakes with his hand to get the truck to stop. He went into cardiac arrest so he had to do CPR on him too. Had it been 15 minutes later after he dropped them off at school it would have been very bad.
