Part of the confusion stems from the fact that it had been autographed by cast members, but the car’s owner, who was not present during the crash, contacted the media to confirm it was not a screen-used vehicle. Indeed its doors are not welded like those of the cars in the show.
Police Chief Preston Schmidt told the Springfield News-Leader on Monday that “It has been determined that the driver of the vehicle was traveling too fast for the road conditions and lost control of the vehicle he was driving” and that no charges had been filed.
