Commentary on Gabriel Cuevas Car Accident in Houston

Pedestrian accidents rarely get the attention they deserve because folks just assume if the pedestrian wasn't in a crosswalk, they're at fault. While that's often true, it's crucial to reconstruct the incident and find out for sure whether or not the victim was reasonably avoidable.

Even if a pedestrian doesn't have the right of way, drivers don't have some free pass to run them over. If they can see and avoid the pedestrian, they have a responsibility to do so. Failing to do so could mean they were doing something that they should be held accountable for. Whether or not anything like that happened here will depend on more thorough investigations.
