Commentary on Pedestrian Truck Accident on I-35W near Luella Street in Fort Worth
Something in these reports could help shed light on a topic I discuss frequently on this blog. Folks may just assume a pedestrian on the highway is always at fault. That is often true, but drivers don't simply have carte blanche to hit them just because they have the right of way. Authorities here mentioned a possible distraction in the driver's vehicle, and that could be a sign that this incident was easily avoidable. What more could there be to this incident the authorities haven't discussed?
