Pedestrian Killed in Accident on North Mesa in El Paso,TX

With a situation like this, people tend to jump to conclusions. If a pedestrian wasn't in a sidewalk, they're at fault, right? Well, that isn't always true. The law is also concerned with whether or not an incident was reasonably avoidable. If it turns out that a reasonably prudent driver would have had no issues avoiding this, a driver failing to avoid it raises some concerns. One way or another, the victim's loved ones deserve to know they're getting the full story. Is that happening here?
