Commentary on Jeremiah Faulkenberry Pedestrian Accident in Brownsville

People tend to overlook pedestrian accidents unless there is clear information that the victim had the right of way and was in a crosswalk. In reality, the law is a bit more nuanced than that. For example, if someone is clearly visible and far away enough to avoid, a driver doesn't have free rein to hit them just because they have the right of way. That's why it's important for there to be clear information about what the victim was doing, where they were exactly, how visible they were, and whether or not a reasonably prudent driver could have avoided them. How that all would pan out here requires more thorough independent investigations.
