    I like that quote "they want somebody to come forward to explain what happened". What they mean is somebody who will come forward and blame the driver.

    Possibly a suicide?

    But then again, why wouldn't the truck stop, unless it's some of the crap trucks that run around ATL, I wouldn't be suprised of them not stopping.

    SHO-TYME read the other articles. The truck did stop, the driver was not detained as he was ruled not at fault. Cops also stated that speed and alcohol/drugs were not a factor in the incident. None of that could be established without the driver being present.
