In her statement, Alexander
said Adams was not under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances at the time of the crash.
said investigators who reconstructed the collision found that Adams' truck was traveling about 62.7 mph at the time of the crash along Indiana 63, in an area where the posted speed limit is 60 mph.

..."... This act caused the collision which took the lives of Officer Dudley and Officer Martin; however, it has long been the law in the state of Indiana that " ... negligent driving is not the basis for imposing criminal liability, no matter how tragic the outcome," Alexander said in her statement.
