INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - One of the survivors in the Officer David Bisard fatal accident case is speaking out.
George Burt was riding his motorcycle that day when Officer Bisard slammed into his friends. Eric Wells died. Mary Mills and Kurt Weekly were severely injured.
Burt is slowing making his way through the crash investigation report released by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
The report has angered him.
"Questions keep popping up," Burt said.
Officer Bisard disappeared for more than 2 hours before the crash. The report doesn't make it clear where he was, as Bisard declined to be interviewed by investigators.
"Two hours, 17 minutes is a lot of unaccounted for time," Burt said. "What was he doing during that time and doesn't want to tell? … Does he have a pattern showing place or time where he is out of vehicle. That is never stated in the report."
Burt's most pointed comments come when he talks about the delayed decision to bring in outside investigators. He calls the decision, "Smoke and mirrors on (Public Safety Director) Frank Straub's part because he knew damn well the state should have been involved."
Burt went on to say, "Politics, politics and covering butt. Plain and simple."
Burt also shared his thoughts about the crash itself.
"I just happened to be inches away from this mayhem," he said, adding he was close enough to get a drop of Wells' blood on the chrome of his speedometer.
Burt says the crash investigators asked him if he thought Officer Bisard was drunk at the scene.
"Hell, the only time I was close to Bisard was when I yell at him to assist me in getting Kurt's bike off him and by the time he got there all he had to do was to help me steady the bike as I put the kick stand up. Do you think I was checking to see if Bisard was showing any signs of being drunk? Hell, he was gone after that, leaving me alone with Mary and Kurt."
A winter weather advisory was issued for Wayne, Union, Switzerland, Ripley, Ohio, Franklin, Fayette and Dearborn counties on Saturday night.
