Tunde Obawunmi Killed, Olatunji Atere Injured in Pedestrian Accident in Eastland County, TX

When it comes to pedestrian accidents, folks don't always realize just how complex they can be. It's not as simple as who did or didn't have right-of-way. It's also important to consider if the incident was reasonably avoidable. A driver who fails to see someone that is well lit and far enough away to avoid doesn't get off scot-free because they had the right-of-way. Whatever happened here, a man lost his life. Instead of jumping to conclusions, folks should avoid jumping to conclusions until there have been thorough investigations from professionals.
