Commentary on Pedestrian Car Accident on Columbus Avenue in Waco

Usually fatal pedestrian accidents like this happen at night, on highways, or in situations where drivers don't usually have the ability to avoid someone. But reports suggest this happened in the afternoon hours while backing out of a business. Most drivers would be able to keep a reasonable view of their surroundings so they could see someone approaching or crossing behind their vehicle. Why wasn't this driver able to do so?

Was there some sort of obstruction to visibility? Was the pedestrian in an unusual place or crossing suddenly into the vehicle's path? Is there something about this particularly property that made a situation like this more likely to occur? My experience tells me that getting clear answers for the victim's loved ones will require more thorough independent investigations from professionals who can consider more than just what seems like an easy explanation.
