  • Once again an accident involving a pedestrian. I’m not blaming any party (driver or pedestrian) because I don’t have a clue what happened, but I’ll bet anyone that it’s the pedestrian who got injured or possibly even killed in this accident. Pedestrians have to start being more defensive in protecting themselves. They might have the right of way, but they will be the ones that gets hurt if there is an accident.
