Quite frankly, pedestrian accidents often go overlooked both in the news and in the police station. As often as drivers are on their phones, speeding, driving with their lights off, and driving drunk, and as often as signals are broke, lines are faded, and signage lacking, people will just automatically assume the pedestrian was doing something wrong. Obviously I wouldn't deny that happens, but I've seen first hand how harmful it can be for a grieving family—still in desperate need of answers about what happened to their loved one—to see everyone in the comments sections and social media immediately blame the victim without really knowing what happened. Getting answers should be the priority, not finding someone to blame.
