New Jersey Governor's SUV traveled at 91 MPH prior to crash

There are a lot of questions raised by the linked story. Here are a few questions that immediately come to mind:

  • Why was the governor's vehicle, driven by a state trooper, going so fast?
  • Why were the emergency lights on? Corzine was going to a meeting between Don Imus and the Rutgers women's basketball team for his disparaging remarks about them being "nappy-headed hos"
  • Why wasn't Corzine wearing a seatbelt?
  • Why did Corzine sustain so many injuries but nobody else did? Were they wearing seat belts?
Speed apparently does not kill (it's the velocity). But today's technology sure sucks when it can point out how fast you were going before you darn near killed somebody.
