Commentary on James Young Pedestrian Accident in Tyler
Folks tend to overlook crashes like this one, but the reality is they can be more complex than folks may realize. It's not just about whether or not a pedestrian has the right-of-way. Even if they don't, if they're reasonably avoidable, drivers have a responsibility to do so. Besides, there could be other extenuating circumstances to consider. Alcohol, medical conditions, poor road design, missing signage, lack of lighting--likely or not, getting a family the answers they deserve means ensuring nothing important slips through the cracks.
