With situations like this, it's important to ensure authorities actually gave the incident the attention it deserves. I find too often that people jump to conclusions when it comes to pedestrian accidents. They assume that the pedestrian was either in a crosswalk or they're at fault. Things just aren't that simple. For example, if someone is in the middle of the roadway, but they're clearly visible and avoidable, a driver has a responsibility to avoid them, right-of-way or not. It's not clear right now if this was one of those situations, but if it took more thorough independent investigations to ensure the victim's loved ones were getting the full story, it wouldn't be the first time.
