Pedestrian Killed in Tractor-Trailer Accident on I-95 in Orangeburg County, SC

With pedestrian accidents like this, it's important to ensure people aren't jumping to conclusions. Quite frankly, it is dangerous for a pedestrian to cross an interstate in just about any situation. But that doesn't automatically make them at fault for a situation like this. There could be extenuating circumstances that made all of this unavoidable or perhaps even that the truck driver should have reasonably been able to avoid yet didn't. It's not my place to say one way or another, but it wouldn't be the first time if more thorough independent investigations showed there was more to this story.
