ARMONK, N.Y. – A truck driver charged with leaving the scene of an accident where his rig was struck by car driven by Kerry Kennedy requested a trial during a court appearance Friday, according to a North Castle Court Clerk.

Rocco Scuiletti, 47, of Poughkeepsie, plead not guilty in early August. According to the North Castle Town Court, a date for Scuiletti’s trial will be decided on Monday, Sept 10. He has not hired a lawyer. 

Police say that on July 13 Scuiletti’s tractor trailer was struck by Kerry Kennedy on Route 684 in Armonk and he failed to report the accident to authorities. Kennedy was arrested following the accident and charged with driving under the influence. After originally claiming that a seizure caused her erratic driving that morning, it was found that a generic prescription sleep aid was in Kennedy’s blood stream at the time of the crash. 

Kennedy pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to reappear in North Castle Court on Tuesday, Sept. 11.

Isn't that great, the man is driving a big rig a gets bumped. With the conditions of our roads here in New York it is sometimes difficult to tell if you hit something or it was a bump in the road. The officer was covering his back side. In this day and age every officer is subject to, and some times unreasonable scrutiny.
I don't know what the damage was to the truck or car. That should be a determining factor on the outcome of the truck driver trial. I do hope that the judge has some experience in vehicle accidents.
The outcome for Kerry Kennedy should NOT be in doubt. She will get a slap on the wrist and maybe go on and kill someone at a later date. If she still is allowed to drive, this may happen sooner than later.
