in Fallen Officer's Family Sues Lucas Oil Over Tragic Death at 2015 San Angelo Drag Boat Races
So tired of seeing these so called drivers thinking they are being courteous to wave someone into crossing traffic and especially apposing traffic in a blind spot. Folks you are not being courteous in this type of gesture, you are only setting up someone for disaster. This Korby death really takes the cake due to it was an so called organized parade. I hope the Kennedy family get the award, not for the money but to set an example that this is not acceptable traffic courtesy.
in House Declared a Total Loss After Controlled Burn Gets Out of Hand
What kind of idiot try's to do so called controlled burn in especially west Texas windiest part of the day. This reporting is sketchy at best, who's house was a total loss? Was it the idiot trying to do a control burn with a garden hose and 5 gallon bucket? Dang good thing more wasn't lost, most especially someone's life.
I am sure they were using lights. But it was late afternoon and the sun was bright.
I don't know what I you do in that situation. But if the driver towing the boat had not motioned for the car to turn left and just stayed in line while the police dept. was escorting them to Twin Peaks which is what they were getting paid to do the accident would of never of happened. The police were in control of the traffic not the people trying to turn one way or the other. Police always have the right of way. Since it was a police escort other vehicles should just wait just like they do when they see police escorts for any other occasions, parades, funerals etc. Seems like all of us learned that in drivers ed at some point. I am 60 years old and still remember learning that. You just do not interfere with anything the SAPD is helping with unless a unless one of them is being attack then feel free to jump in and help them, I would.
in Motorcyclist Seriously Injured After Being Sandwiched Between a Prius and Freightliner
I wish I was a Judge.... I would charge that old lady in the Prius with attempted murder for recklessly running a red light and not watching for motorcyclists on the road and sentence her to prison for the same amount of time that she's been alive, 68 years.......
makes much more sense- thank you. were the police officers using their lights during all this? if so i can understand more about the stupidity of the lucas oil driver stopping the flow of traffic to let the other driver pass in front of them. if they weren't using their lights though i can see how he might've been confused regarding the protocol.
The motorcycle police were racing beside the parade to get to the next intersection in order to direct traffic there. Previously, they were directing traffic at the intersection prior. The parade, more slower, makes its way through the prior intersection and is enroute to the next. Then the motorcycle cop hops back on the bike and has to travel at a higher rate of speed to make it to the next intersection before the parade arrives there. Make sense?
As unfortunate as this whole thing is, suing Lucas Oil or anyone having to do with this accident should be thrown out of court. I'm sure that all of us can attest to suffering the loss of a family member or friend due to terrible circumstances but if we all sued, so many more people would suffer because of it. There were so many benefits held and monetary donations made to his family by so many people that cared about him and the community as a whole. I hate that his wife is now a widow and his children have to live the remainder of their lives without their dad. It sucks. Death sucks! But this was a tragic accident. This won't bring him back. $1,000,000.00.......Is that going to make it all better? Then what? If money is going to heal your broken heart then great, but I highly doubt it. (If it does, then there are deeper issues than just dealing with the loss of a family member.) What will be the next step to get vindication for his death? This is not the answer....
This is sad and I feel sorry for the patrolman's wife and family but this was just an accident. Accidents happen, that's all part of life. What bothers me is how there are some people who are always looking to sue, looking for that fast and easy buck. And after two years, I feel that be more truth then fiction. Money will not bring your loved one back, it will just make you a rich widow.
in City Taps Budget Manager Chegwidden to Run Animal Shelter
I have known Morgan for years, since she worked at the police department. I don't know where she's from but she has done very good work everywhere I have known her to be; police department, city budget. That seems to be her pattern and I don't think changing now will change that. I believe she will continue to do well regardless of her area but this appears to be an area she is passionate about. I wish her very much success. I don't know shy the wait on reporting this.
So the officer was in the lane of traffic beside the "parade", not in front of it, and the guy at the head of the parade had time to stop the entire thing to wave the female driver out in front- was the officer speeding then to get in front of the parade? its not very clear but the events don't really make sense otherwise.
i mean that doesn't excuse the stupidity of the other drivers involved if he was speeding, but it also doesn't make it right to sue them if he was going too fast himself.
it looks like we are in for more rules, we need to get someone that does not have anything to do with any groups here in town, I for 1 is so sick of these dog issues,also we need to have someone from san angelo, that was raised here , to do the job.
in Charleys Philly Steaks Opening in The Mall
Beat me to it :)
in Judge Changes Venue for Jury Selection in Delacruz Capital Murder Trial
It would be a big plus for the State if they could make a change of venue to another County.... One of these smaller Counties absolutely would not tolerate this slime ball to live with a life sentence, there would be a death sentence for certain waiting on him.........
Alrighty then, looks like COSA has them a puppet to organize our so called animal services (formerly animal control).
I am curious how this new leadership is going to remedy the COSA loose animal part of their operation. Guess just have to like folk do in Missouri and let her "show me"(:
