Commentary on Pedestrian Accident at I-35W & West Risinger in Fort Worth
I know that people see someone hit on an interstate and just assume that person was being reckless. As dangerous as it is for someone to be on an interstate, it's important to know all the facts. For all we know, the woman was safely on the shoulder or near a well lit disabled vehicle. Maybe other drivers had no issues avoiding her, but the last driver was doing something wrong. Likely or not, someone lost their life here. Even if it's just to rule out other possibilities, thorough investigations are important. A grieving family at least deserves to know they're getting the answers they deserve.
