Commentary on Jorge Jesus Iglesias Pedestrian Accident in Cameron County

Jorge Jesus Iglesias Pedestrian Accident Cameron County, TX

It's not entirely clear what happened here, and it's very important to make sure authorities are giving this incident the attention it deserves. Quite frankly, even the police have a tendency to treat pedestrian accidents a bit flippantly. They just assume if the victim wasn't in a crosswalk, they were doing something wrong. But that's not always true. The law is nuanced enough to consider that a pedestrian can sometimes be reasonably avoidable even if they don't have the right-of-way. If evidence shows this driver should have been able to see and avoid the victim, why didn't they? If evidence shows they couldn't reasonably avoid the collision, then it would be ridiculous to hold them accountable for anything. The point here is to take every possible step to ensure the victim's loved ones at least know they're getting the full story.
