Here’s a follow-up on the New Jersey Governor. It turns out that the SUV that he was traveling in was going 91 mph in a 65 mph zone. Yep…that’s right! The guy had his driver SPEED! Now, naturally I’m sympathetic for his injuries (he’s on a ventilator and a whole bunch of his body is busted up), but I’m less so for the cause of his injury.
Meanwhile, I haven’t heard whether they caught the hit-and-run driver that the GUV SUV hit, but I now believe that driver is not the one at fault. Note the following from the article:
The state trooper-driven sport utility vehicle was in the left lane with its emergency lights flashing when a pickup tried to get out of its way. Instead, it set off a chain reaction that resulted in the crash.
Not even the governor is above the law, and he and his driver ought to be prosecuted for this speeding incident, as much or more as the hit and run driver ought to be.
