Commentary on Pedestrian Accident on Expressway 83 in Alamo

Alamo, TX Pedestrian Accident Expressway 83 7 12 St

I can't say what exactly happened here, but it's important people understand why pedestrian accidents can be so complex. Put simply, things aren't as simple as saying someone was or wasn't in a crosswalk. There could be unusual circumstances like one I handled recently where an establishment over-served alcohol to the victim, causing them to walk onto a freeway. It's also possible the victim was clearly visible and reasonably avoidable, in which case a driver failing to avoid them would raise some red flags, even if they technically had the right of way. At the end of the day, jumping to conclusions isn't going to get anyone the help they deserve. Were steps ever taken to get clear answers about what happened here?
