calbert: Kyosuke: Curious: rhiannon: Who's she?

FTFA: "One of those teenagers was hit on the runway by a fire truck, though it's not clear whether she was already dead when she was struck, San Francisco police spokesman Albie Esparza told CNN on Friday."

1) the police spokesman was doing CYA for the fire fighters.

How is this CYA? Until the coroner was done there was no way of knowing for certain.

but the coroner is not done. the police spokesman even says that they're waiting for the coroner's full, complete report:

"Right now, we are waiting results from the coroner to determine if she died from the crash or the fire engine going over her," the police spokesman said. "And that will be part of our investigations, like any other case, by our hit-and-run and major accidents investigations teams."

so at this point, all that is known is that she was hit by a fire truck and that she is now dead, but the order of events is uncertain.

so yes, in the mean time, the police spokesman is trying to shield the fire department.

By openly telling the truth? I never realized that CYA worked that way.

Please let the KTVU thing become a meme. So the justin bieber one can die if for no reason other than that.

For those that missed the video (it is freaking hilarious):

And FWIW, an intern at the NTSB supplied the names.

Sad, but 304 of 307 surviving gross incompetence @ 100 mph is pretty good.
