  • Wouldn’t that be considered a “hit and run” if he left the scene? And isn’t a human life worth more than a “He was in my way”? At the very least he could have said he didn’t see the employee as he was backing up.

  • I was at the Hellertown Giant just after the incident occurred, and spoke with Ian, the carts collector in question. He was not injured, but in his own words he did “catch air” when the idiot backed into him. Frankly, I think that a traffic ticket doesn’t even go as far as a slap on the wrist. “He was in my way” suggests that Mr. Staff, the idiot who was driving that white Prius, couldn’t care less about what happened. If it were me, I’d give him jail time.
