The original article said he

The original article said he was the former police chief of North Charleston, SC. I wondered about that.

It may of been the officers

It may of been the officers fault for the accident but those logging trucks drive way to fast on the roads around here. We travel Hwy 56 all the time an they are always speeding an will drive in the left hand lanes even going up hill. You have to dodge the debre that falls from there trucks as well. Seems like there has been a lot of deaths lately involving those logging trucks. :(
