  1. “the victim was in the crosswalk, but was attempting to cross the street against a red light when she was hit”
    .
    The driver may not have been impaired, but what about the pedestrian? Many auto-pedestrian crashes are caused by drunk pedestrians, but that fact is rarely publicized.

  2. Wanna guess she was dressed in dark colors, nearly impossible to SEE? At least once a week, we almost have such a incident, any where in town, as people dressed in dark clothing, run across the road in front of our car, sometimes in unlit areas, all that can be seen is a silhouette moving against distant lights! For The Love Of Your LIVES, Wear Something LIGHT!

    1. Or preferably don’t run across the street in front of vehicles.
      .
      Unfortunately, choosing the right clothing or not running across the street are both difficult to adhere to if you’re under the influence of a mid-altering substance.
