Good Samaritan at bike crash
says deputy believed he fell asleep.
There was no screech, no bang - no noise to warn bicyclist Daniel Brasse what was coming up around the corner Sunday morning on Stevens
A Santa Clara County sheriff's patrol car was facing the wrong way on the wrong side of the road after slamming into a group of Brasse's riding
partners. A deputy was walking around in a daze, later telling at least two witnesses he had fallen asleep.
One of Brasse's friends, Matt Peterson, 30, was already dead. Another, Christopher Knapp, 20, was writhing in agony, with two limbs broken. And the
third, 31-year-old Kristianna Gough, her leg severed and her head bleeding, was gasping for air.
Was it an "accident".
Sad, tragic and unnecessary, maybe.
Let's hope they don't try to lie, mitigate or cover up.
Apologize, retrain, settle with the families for the max damages and don't make them suffer more - my hope.
