According to the affidavit by New Hampshire state trooper Brandon Girardi, witness Stephen Piwowarski, who was driving with his wife and child from Maine toward Vermont, saw the driver of the pickup truck and trailer travel into the eastbound lane of the road on two separate occasions before the crash.
Another driver who told investigators she saw the truck and trailer plow into the bikers and blow up said she didn’t see the truck apply the brakes “at all.”
