Based on the information provided in this report, it seems as though the driver could be held liable for the collision as it appears the 27-year-old victim was indeed within the means of a marked crosswalk. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast the driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicle such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the injured man will likely be subject to a personal injury lawsuit against the driver pending the findings of the investigation. Personal injury victims are entitled to compensation for damages including medical bills and hospital bills, lost future income, and pain and suffering.
