Ask the public for help but just give "blue" as the only detail? Why?

Surely we can do better than this?



Well, I got the answer I was looking for! Heard a rumor tonight out on the street, that this is yet another "Bradford cover up". That people on the scene recognized and identified the hit and run driver.

SSSWWWOOOOOSSSHHH! Sweep another one under the carpet!

"Welcome to Bradford"!

Are you referring to this incident?

I usually agree with you but unless this is a frame job I think they got the guy. Amazing that they were able to do so with such a vague description of the vehicle.

That's it! There were several eye witnesses who saw the whole thing and positively identified the driver and the exact type of vehicle, so why they only said it was a "blue vehicle" is beyond me!

Stupid little games.

Why don't they charge him with leaving the scene of an accident or hit and run with injuries?

You still can! As of yesterday when I wrote that, the "official word" form the Police, WESB and the ERA was that they were asking the public for help locating the driver, and all they offered was the color "blue". No description of the vehicle, even though eye witnesses did describe the vehicle and the person driving it.

Still a very unusual situation given the facts!

http://www.pennsylvania-defense-lawyer. ... s/hit-run/


Pennsylvania Penalties for Leaving the Scene of an Accident
The penalties for a hit & run depend largely on the severity of the accident. If the accident resulted in only property damage, you could face a 3rd degree misdemeanor charge which carries up to one year in prison and fines reaching $2,500.

Ref: PA Code §75-3743
If, however, the accident resulted in injury or death of another person, the penalty is far more severe:

Leaving the scene of an accident where injury results is considered a 3rd degree felony, carrying a mandatory minimum 90 day jail sentence and up to 7 years in prison, along with a minimum $1,000 fine.


Looks like somebody will be spending the next three months in jail!
