  • You know what is sad is that no one thinks of the driver. Anytime a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle we as humans automatically think of the injured. There is so much help for the injured. The thing oeople fail to realize is the driver may be innocent, yet they suffer alone. They pay for the damage to their vehicle, and everything else that goes along with the crash. For instance, the psychological trauma that they suffer for the rest of their lives. Every case is different, but just remember the driver may be innocent. Do not cast blame. They are suffering too.

    Btw, i am not related or defending either side;simply making a statement.

  • I’m one of the women in the picture there. To all of you being insensitive- shame on you, a man is fighting for his life. Shout out to the emergency responders who did a fantastic job yesterday in a horrific situation. Too many of us won’t rest well for a long time.

          • I mean the impact knocked him unconscious right away, so he wasn’t laying there in pain. It was instant, he was unconscious right away.

  • Prayers for all involved in this incident. With that said, had the pleasure ( not really) of driving behind a lady (not old lady) today with her precious dog in her lap, she was either drunk or texting, we watched as she swerved off the road, then corrected and cars coming , then off the road again. Until they make a law against texting, driving with dogs in there laps etc, you are going to have more and more accidents This was in a residential area, could have run over someone on side of road, almost took out some mailboxes. Didn’t have my cell phone with me, or I would have called. 911. She finally turned and hope she didn’t hurt anyone after that.

  • Cara & nobody obviously don’t believe in SHARING !!!! In this county alot of folks don’t have cars for whatever reasons. Would you two suggest they FLY TO GET TO STORES, WORK, ETC.??? So far bicyclists & now pedestrians don’t belong anywhere. GET REAL !!!! SHARE !!!!!!!! DRIVERS NEED TO PAY MORE ATTENTION TO WATCHING THE ROAD AND WHAT’S AROUND THEM . PERIOD. IT’S CALLED DEFENSIVE DRIVING .

    • They need to learn to obey laws like drivers then.They run stop signs,dont stop at intersection,cross where they want and on S.H.Dr, they run and ride out right in front of cars coming and no where near a crosswalk.They have the same laws as drivers.Also most make no sense walking and riding in roads when there is sidewalks 2 feet from them.Not saying any of this is what happened here as no one knows but since the comments are rolling in I will ad mine.Hope everyone is ok here

  • That’s not a cross walk, that’s why we have cross walks!! Too many stupid people thinking they can cross that road and it’s just plain dangerous and stupid as we now see. Don’t blame the drivers, the pedestrians don’t belong there!

    Wednesday, 15 March 2017, 4:52 pm
    • Amen thats the truth

      Wednesday, 15 March 2017, 8:15 pm
    • I agree! And I live in the general area of this accident. There’s a cross walk maybe 50 ft before lowes. Careless on both ends ,sad result!

  • Drivers and walkers not paying attention.

    Wednesday, 15 March 2017, 3:15 pm
    • Isn’t THAT the truth! Most of it caused by those PHONES!!!

      Wednesday, 15 March 2017, 5:47 pm
    • Drivers not paying attention & walkers having no crosswalks or pedestrian bridge overs.

      Wednesday, 15 March 2017, 5:57 pm
    • Okay idiots- you have no knowledge about this. There is not enough information to tell in the article. Freaking morons.

      Wednesday, 15 March 2017, 8:31 pm
