Hopefully authorities are able to get more information than they released here. Frankly, pedestrian accidents tend to slip through the cracks. People think they're simple, and it's all about knowing who had the right of way. As important as that is, what about other factors? Lighting, emergencies, alcohol, road design, signage—these all can come up if investigators are thorough enough to find them or otherwise rule them out. It remains to be seen if investigators here exercised that level of effort to get this person's loved ones the answers they deserve.
