Commentary on Gene Dean Car Accident in Angelina County

Gene Dean Killed in Car Accident in Angelina County, TX

When it comes to pedestrian accidents, folks are generally quick to assume it all comes down to right-of-way. That's certainly important, but it isn't exactly the right question. The more prudent question is whether or not the drivers involved could have reasonably avoided hitting the victim. Even if they were somewhere they shouldn't have been (which it's unclear where exactly the victim here was), a driver that can clearly see and avoid them still has a responsibility to do so. Could it be this accident was reasonably avoidable? It may take more thorough independent investigations to ensure this victim's loved ones get the answers they deserve.
