    The basic questions are, did she know she hit the guy? If there was a traffic signal, was he walking when he had the light or walk signal? Were her cell records checked for texting? Toxicology….of both? You know, if someone wants to commit suicide or just generally careless, they can walk in front of a truck. Initially the driver is suspect.

      If you want all those details, go over and look at the police report. If you like to speculate so much enter the futures market.
