More factors are being revealed about the fatal accident with a fire truck that killed 27-year-old Lauren Roady.
The newest report released has a lot of details surrounding the factors that police say led to the accident.
The report mentions several factors that led to the crash, including blind spots on the fire truck, the rainy conditions, and the driver simply not being able to see Roady. The firefighter driving the truck involved is Christopher Presley.
The report states, “The combination of physical barriers to line of sight, the weather conditions, and the ambient lighting available made visibility at the time of the collision poor.”
The lighting issues included the Christmas tree lights and two street lamps at the intersection of South Broadway and West Main Street.
It is also stated, “Mrs. Roady was wearing dark clothing; which decreased her ability to be seen.”
Speed has been determined to not be a factor in this collision.
Police have concluded Roady was legally crossing the street, but “Firefighter Presley’s ability to avoid this incident was hampered by environmental, situational and vehicular factors.”
