The District Attorney's office released a statement late this afternoon in the tragic death of a 67 year old Amherst woman last night and I guess I can see why they took their time issuing it considering the unthinkable reality of what happened.
When was the last time you looked behind your car at night to see if someone was flat on the ground near the rear tires before backing up?

So I guess the bricks and mortar media was close when they originally portrayed it as a "car vs pedestrian."
But after the horrendous incident in town center six weeks ago where a drunk driver piloting a speeding truck trampled a man sitting on a bench waiting for a PVTA bus, people are naturally suspicious.
Especially when they see the phrase "State Police have been called in to investigate" which insiders know happens with ANY unattended death.
Transparency is always the better option, even when the facts are so jolting.
