Jonathan Reyes Killed in Kyle, TX Pedestrian Accident

Kyle, TX -- A pedestrian vs. vehicle incident left 22-year-old Jonathan Reyes dead in the area of Kyle, TX Thursday, January 12, 2017.

Sources claim the victim was killed on I-35 in the vicinity of the FM 150 exit about 9:30 p.m. A portion of southbound I-35 was closed for several hours following the incident. Officials are currently conducting the investigation in the hopes of determining the exact cause of the incident.

Due to the immediacy of the incident, the report provided no further information.

According to the details provided by the report, the incident happened about 9:30 p.m. Now, I get that it was at night and presumably there's was at least some potential for impaired vision. But, the incident doesn't appear to have occurred in some small, rural country road in Texas where there are no street lights. These media reports are often quick to imply blame, but given the very sparse details laid out here, I would say this accident deserves a much deeper investigation. What if independent investigators were to examine the driver's phone and find they were distracted at the time of the incident? It's not like this type of thing is unheard of, and in fact, I have seen plenty of accidents involving vehicles and pedestrians where this turned out to be true. No matter the outcome, it's best to wait to pass judgment only after a thorough investigation into the accident has been completed.
