We'll have to choose to disagree on this one. I saw this one a few months ago, and it seemed pretty clear that while the driver was already dead, Al was convinced he'd be accused of murder because of the injury to the man's head. Anyway, I found the movie's vision of noir unique, a man doomed because of a sequence of bad luck as opposed to consequences from his own actions.
