Commentary on 12-year-old Car Accident on McPherson in Laredo

Laredo, TX

It's not entirely clear what happened here, though some reports suggest the driver had a green light. I certainly wouldn't say that isn't true, but there are also plenty of situations where authorities overlook something important. Pedestrian accidents aren't always about the right of way. For example, if someone is directly under a bright light, they're clearly visible, and they're far enough away to avoid, a driver paying attention should be able to avoid them. Maybe nothing like that happened here, but I'd say a kid sent to the hospital warrants efforts to make sure nothing important slipped through the cracks.
