Cops Refuse To Charge Truck Driver With ANYTHING Even As Video Shows The Truck Driver Is Clearly At Fault

Written by Boston Biker on Jan 24

Its clear from these videos that the truck driver had plenty of time to notice there was a vehicle (a bicycle) in the lane next to them, the truck overtakes the cyclists, and then continues to turn into them, then flees the scene…shit.  What do you have to do to get charged with something in this town?

 

Warning these videos are hard to watch.

Very good work from Massbike here, more here.
