  1. The cause of the crash is a dumba$$ tried to cross a busy highway and got hit by a car. There ain’t much more to investigate. Sgt Edwards is an idiot, but wait…..maybe add a crosswalk like you did at Cleveland high school for the illegal drivers to get to their cars that they park across the street because they can’t park at the school without possessing a drivers license. Then no one will get hit crossing the road illegally.
