Commentary

With all accidents involving pedestrians struck by vehicles, am important detail will be determining where the pedestrian was positioned in relation to the roadway at the time of the incident. Did the vehicle strike them at a crosswalk? Was the pedestrian in a parking lot at the time of the collision? Were they on the sidewalk, or a designated bike lane? As with all preliminary media reports, there's always quite a bit of important information missing. And while these details may seem insignificant, legally speaking, they carry a great amount of weight.

As of now, there's simply not enough information in the media reports to determine who may be at fault. More information may become available pending a more thorough, impartial, scientific investigation. If placed under a "microscope," these pertinent details will go a long way in bringing closure to all involved.
