Commentary on Pedestrian Car Accident on Slide Road in Lubbock
With an incident like this, it's important to be thorough and avoid jumping to conclusions. People see a pedestrian hit at night and assume that they must have been crossing when and where they shouldn't have been. That's pretty likely, but details are important.
Was the victim visible? Who had the right-of-way? Did other drivers have little issue avoiding them? Was the driver or the pedestrian under the influence of alcohol? These can complicate things quite a bit and potentially even open up avenues to get the victim some much needed help. Hopefully steps are taken here to get the incident in the hands of someone who cares about the facts.
