With a situation like this, it's important to understand what the exact timing of the events was and to what degree the collision was avoidable. Put simply, a parking lot of an apartment complex is just about the most obvious place a driver could expect to encounter pedestrians. That's why drivers would generally need to be especially attentive to their surroundings in a setting like this.

But that's not to say a driver would automatically be responsible for hitting someone in parking lot. If that person crosses behind the vehicle suddenly or in a manner that the driver couldn't reasonably see them, it would be ridiculous for them to be on the hook for that. There could even be problems with the property that unnecessarily cause pedestrians and vehicles to cross paths.

Is that something police are looking into, or are they going to treat this as "just an accident"? There are no doubt folks out there in need of answers, so there may need to be steps from independent professionals to ensure they get those answers.
