As obliged by law, motorists must decrease the speed of their vehicles and yield to pedestrians along all areas of a roadway. In the case of this accident, officials have speculated the male pedestrian had not been walking on a marked crosswalk at the time.
As part of the ongoing investigation, forensic teams will examine the Toyota Echo and analyze photos of the crash site to determine if the vehicle experienced mechanical issues or system failure, resulting in the accident. Likewise, officials will consider if drugs, alcohol, negligence, recklessness, or distracted driving played any role in the events leading up to the collision.
In the event of an accident of this nature, the non-guilty injured victims can potentially pursue a personal injury lawsuit to receive compensation for a variety of issues ranging from painful injuries to medical bills.
