    N.C. Officer Runs Over Hit-And-Run Victim

    POSTED: 7:55 am EDT June 10, 2005

    GASTONIA, N.C. -- North Carolina authorities said a police officer responding to an emergency call of a man struck by a car accidentally ran over the victim with his patrol car.

    Authorities said there was a car with its high beams burning in the center turn lane and they think the officer assumed it was someone delivering newspapers.

    Instead, it was the person who called 911 trying to mark the location of the body. Police said the car's high-beam lights blinded the officer and he hit the body.

    The victim is identified as Kenneth James Bishop, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators are trying to determine if the 22-year-old man was already dead before the officer's vehicle hit him.

    The Highway Patrol has been called in to investigate. They sent an accident reconstruction team to the site to try and recreate the accident. They hope to use some aerial photography from a chopper to aid them in that effort.

    --------
    No doubt about it, this officer had a bad day!

            Just for an update on this...the guy was already dead when he was run over. A friend of his has been charged with murder. Seems that they were out drinking (no way!) and got into an argument (you don't say!). Drunkard #1 strikes drunkard #2 in the head with some blunt object and left him bleeding to death in the road.

            A passerby finds him later and for some reason parks a good way down the road with his highbeams on, facing the dead guy. The officer reponds and can't see much of the road due to the caller's highbeams. By the time he sees the stiff, it's too late, thump..thump.

                No lie, my old man did this back around '73 or '74. Same situation. Guy was already dead so he backed off of him. He said the chrome on the ambulance blinded him as he drove up. Asked where the body was... they told him to back up and he would see.

                  I concur. If you can't see where your going then don't go there.

                        I hit trees, very hard. I think they move in front of my car. I cant understand it. One of these days I will figure it out

                          Is it wrong to laugh at this??
