Several sources allude to the fact that the other driver was sick that night and needed a break. The robbers had more numbers and could of chased that stage and stopped it. They did not appear to make an effort to get the bullion.

Doc was an associate of Leonard and frequented the cabin that his group hung out with. Wyatt right after the robbery attempt went to that cabin, and grab a newspaper or some document to match from a paper the robbers had...coincidence? How would he know to do that at the very beginning of an investigation?

I always suspected Doc was involved in some manner that evening, that it went bad and he high tailed it for Tombstone. He was broke that night and had to hock a watch to get into a game. If he was broke how would he go all the way to Charleston to gamble, among the same element that they were up against?
