Commentary on Gina Marie Daugherty Pedestrian Accident in Midland

I find that people are often too quick to jump to conclusions after incidents like these. They tend to think that unless a pedestrian is in a crosswalk, they're at fault. That can certainly be true a lot of the time, but the law isn't that simple.

It's also important, for example, to consider if the collision was avoidable. A driver failing to avoid someone that a more reasonably prudent driver could have avoided is often a sign that driver was doing something wrong. Maybe that isn't what happened here, but were authorities thorough enough to get all the facts? It's possible more thorough independent investigations could reveal more details.
