    I guess because it is an ongoing investigation and they don’t want to confirm anything yet.

    If the truck was going south bound and Carl was walking North how did he not see him especially if he was in the roadway he definitely had to see him. He also said that Carl was walking so he seen him

    Why does it say “who was apparently in the roadway” when the only person present was the driver other than the victim who is my uncle.this does not sound correct and shouldn’t be put out there as the truth,a big truck going right toward someone would see that person.
