Commentary on Harrison Charlesworth Truck Accident in Springfield

If it's true that someone was in a lane of travel on the highway, that's certainly concerning. However, I find too often that folks are quick to blame pedestrians without actually knowing all of the facts. That's somewhat understandable on a highway, where it's dangerous for any pedestrian to be. That said, shouldn't there be clear evidence to tell the story, especially for a family in need of answers?

After all, this happened during day time. It's not out of the question that the pedestrian was visible and avoidable, regardless of where they were in the road. I'm certainly not trying to stir up any controversy. I've simply seen too many situations where authorities missed something important because they thought the facts were as clear as they needed to be. If nothing else, it shouldn't be controversial to ensure a victim's loved ones are getting the full story. Are those steps being taken here?
