Commentary on Christie Castro Pedestrian Accident in San Antonio
There isn't much information regarding what happened, but I've been seeing discussion about this incident from concerned locals. There is obviously frustration on both sides, with some assuming that the pedestrian was being reckless, and others saying that drivers in San Antonio are often speeding, on their phones, or drunk. As odd as it may sound, it's encouraging to see that there are folks who think both ways. A lot of people will just jump to blame the pedestrian. Is it possible the victim made a mistake here? Certainly, but just because a driver wasn't arrested on the scene doesn't mean they did nothing wrong. Are steps being taken here to truly get clear answers for the victim's loved ones?
