Commentary on Pedestrian Accident on Blue Bluff Rd in Austin

It seems like there's still more work to do to find out exactly what happened here. On one hand reports say a vehicle hit the victim (though they don't mention if it stayed at the scene), but on the other it was mentioned that a heart attack might have been what took the victim's life. Did the one cause the other? Was the victim already in a state of poor health? Is it possible they were already in the middle of a cardiac episode when the vehicle passed through?

I don't know more than anyone else about what happened here, but I think it's best that authorities look carefully into it--the same as any other accident. At the very least the victim's loved ones deserve all the answers they can get about their loss. If there are other steps to take beyond that, knowing so will depend on what's learned.
