I can't understand why the driver of the truck wasn't charged with failing to secure a load and misd. death by motor vehicle. Maybe the Officers and District Attorney needs to pull out their Chapter 20 laws. Ie, the story says, no charges are expected to be filed. If I was the investigating officer, I would have charged the above, without consulting the DA. The DA is not an investigator, that is left up to the Law Enforcement Officer on the scene. If they aren't trained to investigate traffic accidents without having to first consult with the DA, they shouldn't be put in that position!!!
