‘I AM REALLY SAD’
Rıza Kayaalp, who made a statement to the press at the exit of the courthouse, stated that he was very upset and said, “A very sad and undesirable event took place. I wish God’s mercy on the deceased and my condolences to his relatives.”
In a written statement made by her lawyers, Kayaalp said, “While Hadise was driving on the Yozgat-Sivas highway, following all traffic precautions and rules, the deceased suddenly jumped into the main road in an uncontrolled dark environment and hit my car with the thought of crossing over to the opposite side. The person was already holding his arm before the TIR hit him, I saw that the person was like this thanks to the headlights of the TIR, but unfortunately the truck behind could not see it. I already stopped my car immediately and went to help to take the person to the hospital, but because the incident happened suddenly, this happened. “In this tragic incident, I did not have the slightest fault, nor did I have the slightest negligence. It has been determined that I have no faults in our law enforcement officers, eye-witnesses, the findings of the incident and the expert reports received.”
