Commentary on Heather Revoir Car Accident in Keene

I can't help wondering what police are basing reports on besides the statement from the driver. For all we know, that's the sole surviving witness trying to paint themselves in a better light. To be clear, I can't say what happened here more or less than anyone else. Maybe that driver's claims were true, and something unusual occurred, like in a recent case I had where a man stumbled onto a freeway after a bowling alley illegally over-served him to the point of being dangerously intoxicated. It's worth considering the possibility something similar happened here.

With that said, people have a tendency to automatically blame pedestrians unless it's crystal clear they were in a crosswalk. In reality, it's important to break down exactly how visible and avoidable the victim was. Even if they didn't have the right of way, a driver failing to avoid a reasonably avoidable accident is a serious sign they were doing something wrong. Is that something authorities have considered here, or will this be yet another tragic event better off in the hands of independent investigators?
