  19. “En cuanto haya más información disponible, la historia se actualizará.” Dado que no se parece a lo que va a suceder, voy a decir lo que era obvio para cualquiera que conociera la esquina. Un arbusto bloqueó la vista en Tucson Dr. Yo diría que la conductora no “tiró delante del” vehículo en Wheatland Rd., que probablemente estaba en el carril de la derecha. Ella, por necesidad, se tiró hacia adelante para ver si alguien estaba allí.
