Commentary on Minerva Hinojosa Pedestrian Accident in Progreso

It's unclear what happened here, but folks tend to assume a pedestrian hit this early in the morning must have done something wrong. That's possible, of course, but pedestrian accidents are often more complex than people realize. It's not just about who had the right-of-way or if someone was drunk, as important as those potential factors are. But it's also important to find out if the driver should have been able to avoid the pedestrian. If so, what prevented them from doing so? Maybe authorities are working hard to answer these questions, but it's often prudent to ensure independent investigators look into things as soon as possible.
