A report entitled “Dangerous by Design 2016” produced by Streetsblog USA indicated that the Riverside region is one of the areas which have the highest pedestrian fatality rates in California. Pedestrian deaths continue to rise, not only in the county but also across the nation, making the roads more unsafe for the people.
In this particular case, the victim was in the crosswalk when he was hit by a car. Several questions have surfaced and are needed to be resolved then. Was the driver involved under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was there any recklessness or negligence on the part of the motorist?
