Given the driver also hit and knocked over a large metal urban trashcan and a mailbox, pulling a metal blue postal mailbox out of the ground, speeding is a reasonable assumption.

You can’t assume the driver was not at fault.

Just going by what the article states. The police do not suspect the driver. So why should we.

No criminality was suspected in the smash-up, police said.

One has to assume there were witnesses that spoke to the police. This is NYC after all. People are everywhere.

As far as the mailbox being knocked over; the driver may have jerk the wheel at the last moment in trying to avoid hitting McKean.

My only point is that the reporter is using inflammatory words when the police are saying they have so far determined that the driver was not at fault.
