I wanted some of you guys to read this and see if you're drawing the same inference that I am. It says that the man who later died, was also at fault and cited. How do you give a ticket to a dead man????

he hadn't died yet when cited. when i worked at the graveyard in Piqua, we were told that if we were hit by a car, the police would cite us wheather we lived through it or not. yes, the will cite you even if you're killed instantly here.

I don't know this for sure, but I think that some insurance companies require a citation if they are going to pay for a claim.
