Reynaldo Trejo Pedalcyle Accident Houston, TX

With a situation like this, it's important to consider the full context surrounding the accident and not focus on one factor that seems clear. Police said that the victim was not in a crosswalk, and maybe that's all folks need to hear. But the law is a bit more nuanced. For example, was the victim in a well-lit area? Was he far enough away for a reasonably prudent driver to avoid? If so, then why didn't this driver avoid hitting the victim? That could be a sign that there's more to the situation than just someone being where they shouldn't have been. If for no other reason than to get a grieving family the answers they deserve, investigating these possibilities more thoroughly would be an important step forward.
