Commentary on David Hutchinson Truck Accident in Baton Rouge

It's not entirely clear what happened here, but this appears to be an area one might expect to encounter pedestrians, even early in the morning. The issue, of course, will be finding out who had the right-of-way and exactly how visible the victim was.

Obviously if someone doesn't have a signal to cross, it would be dangerous to do so. However, a driver would still have a responsibility to avoid them if they were reasonably avoidable. Did authorities look into surrounding businesses for security footage? Were there witnesses? Did other drivers avoid the pedestrian without issue? Was there video on the truck that can be pulled? If nothing else, there is likely a family out there that deserves some answers, so steps should be taken to get them those answers.
