BOSTON (CBS) – Massachusetts Republicans are calling for more details about Lt. Gov. Tim Murray’s car accident last week.
Lt. Gov. Murray said he lost control on a patch of ice on I-190 in Sterling early Thursday morning.
Murray’s car skidded and flipped several times but he wasn’t hurt.
State police blamed poor road conditions for the crash.
But, Republicans want Lt. Gov. Murray to release the car’s data recorder in the event there were other factors that, they say, taxpayers have the right to know.
“Lieutenant Governor Murray could clear up a lot of the questions surrounding the destruction of this state-owned vehicle by asking the State Police to release the data from the car’s recording device,” said Nate Little, MassGOP Executive Director. “Now that we know Mr. Murray is safe, it is time we know what happened, and the information available in the car’s recording device would provide definitive answers.”
