One lucky bastard

Traveling 100MPH, no seat belt, goes off the road into a rock ledge, destroys the car, and walks away unscathed.

And on top off all that, gets a slap on the wrist for a penalty. Amazing.

No, its about being honest and stepping up for the black box data. Accidents happen, and since there were no injuries, I think this response was appropriate. If he had lied or tried to conceal something more insidious, that's different.

Certainly sounds like the individual was not completely truthful initially

Quote:
The posted speed limit in the area is 65 miles per hour, and the lieutenant governor had previously said that he had not been speeding and that he had been wearing a seat belt.
Hmm, It really doesn't sound like that was inevitable (the truth being determined) until some closer scrutiny took place.

Quote:
State Police had earlier denied media requests to retrieve the black box data, saying its investigators had more urgent cases and that the cause of Murray’s crash had already been attributed to icy roads.
So, at least initially, he was given a pass that would not have been available to most other drivers.
