“Roger was definitely behind the wheel. Roger slowly drove it out – he didn’t take off recklessly. There were children around, after all. They were only gone for five or ten minutes and never came back.”
“It was clear the car had hit two trees then finally hit a street lamppost. Parts of the car were strewn everywhere on the street, as far as 150 feet. I didn’t see any skid marks. Where the car had crashed was on a long straightaway. How fast they were going, I don’t know.
“Roger was not a reckless guy. He was a family man. He has a wife and two young children. He never did anything careless.”
