    ... and there are particular witnesses that saw the incident.

    Is the use of that here correct?
    I just heard this sentence spoken of in the news a while ago.
    I think who is what's proper.

    Many thanks,

    Both that and who can be used in this sentence.
    There are some who strongly prefer using who when referring to people, others happily use either.
    Previous threads may be useful - see that who.
