Pedestrians often don’t get to present their side of an accident story
September 9, 2018 at 7:27 PM
Pedestrian fatalities are rising in the Washington area and across the United States, according to the Sept. 4 Metro article “4 pedestrians fatally struck over holiday weekend.” Most such deaths are attributed to what police often term “pedestrian error,” such as walking in a traffic lane or outside a crosswalk.
I’m curious: How does a dead pedestrian present his or her side of the story?
