Commentary on Fabiola Cervantes Pedestrian Accident in Austin

Fabiola Cervantes Pedestrian Accident Austin, TX

With pedestrian accidents, people can jump to conclusions rather quickly. They tend to think that someone was either in a crosswalk or they're automatically to blame. As important as right-of-way is, things aren't that simple. It's also important to consider how avoidable a collision was. For example, even if a pedestrian is in the middle of the highway, if they're clearly visible and far away enough to avoid, a driver failing to avoid them could be a sign that driver was doing something negligent. Maybe nothing like that happened here, but those are the kinds of things authorities need to look into after a serious incident like this. It remains to be seen if they're actually taking those steps.
