"I can tell you without a doubt that the truck ran the red light. It was a big 4x4 type pickup doing maybe 50mph." That is what an eyewitness told WalkBikeJersey last week after we ran the story about Roger Hode being charged in the crash that took Chelsea Traynor's life. Also according to the eye witness "she had the green light and that the truck ran the red light."
When WalkBikeJersey visited the site in December 2010, we looked at the signal timing specifically at how long it took to cross the intersection once the pedestrian signal button was pushed. With this information it would seem likely that Chelsea took the time to wait until she had the proper signal and the right of way. This new information makes her death all the more tragic.
