Sheriff Phillip C. Povero: 8/10/14
“At this moment there are no facts or evidence that would support a criminal charge or criminal intent,” via a Sunday news conference. “This is right now being investigated as an on-track crash, and I don’t want to infer that there are criminal charges pending,” Sheriff Povero added. “When the investigation is completed, we will sit down with the district attorney and review it. But I want to make it very clear: There are no criminal charges pending at this time.”
