Natalia Woman Pedestrian Accident Highway 132 Medina County, TX

It's not clear exactly what happened here, but folks tend to assume that if a pedestrian wasn't in a crosswalk, they're to blame, and that's that. While that is important to look into, there could be other factors to consider. For example, I handled a pedestrian incident not long ago where the cause of the accident was a local bowling alley illegally over-serving alcohol to the victim. They became disoriented trying to walk home, leading to them walking into traffic. What folks overlooked as someone just being reckless turned out to be a negligent business responsible for contributing to a fatal accident. Just to be clear, I'm not saying that happened here. My point is simply that thorough investigations are worth the effort when it comes to getting people the help and the answers they need. Were those steps taken here?
