Melissa Robinson 18-wheeler Accident Greenville County, SC

It's not really clear what happened here, though folks may think that a pedestrian on the interstate is automatically responsible for an accident like this. But what really happened here? It's not even clear where exactly the victim was or what she was doing. There's a big difference, for example, between someone crossing main lanes of an interstate and someone standing next to their well-lit, disabled vehicle on the shoulder. The law is nuanced enough that someone is not automatically responsible just for being in a dangerous place. It's important to consider what they were doing, where they were, and how reasonably avoidable they were. Answering these questions should be the priority for investigators right now.
