Commentary on Julee Hill Pedestrian Accident in Baytown

Julee Hill Killed in Pedestrian Accident in Baytown, TX

When it comes to pedestrian incidents, folks tend to think it all comes down to right of way. As important as that is, the law is more nuanced than that. If, for example, authorities found that the pedestrians were clearly visible and reasonably avoidable, a driver failing to avoid them may have been doing something that prevented them from reacting appropriately. Is it possible that happened here? I'd say a woman losing her life is at least worth investigating.
