Polk said her office concluded that the “collision video, as it displays, likely does not accurately depict the events that occurred.” She didn’t elaborate further on possible discrepancies, but recommended Tempe police get an expert analysis of what the vehicle’s driver should have seen at the time of the accident,

It’d be interesting to hear where the red one was spotted. That’d surely clear up a lot. I still think there’s evidence pointing both ways. Read more
