Driver hits child - Who is wrong?
Years ago (and I mean years ago) I heard a story about a driver (probably a minor) who hit a child who was crossing the street. Police said the driver was texting while driving, but his lawyer said he'd finished the text before the accident. Normally, I would say the driver is at fault here, BUT the two-year-old child was crossing the street with a four-year-old sibling at two in the morning! At the time I heard this on the news, the parents still had not been found. Obviously the driver had to go to court (and maybe even jail). Personally, if I were on his jury, I'd have a hard time faulting him for the accident. Two-year-olds should not be crossing the street without an adult and definitely NOT at 2 AM. What do you think? Would you have found the driver guilty?
That said, I hope the parents were investigated to find out why in the world their babies were outside unsupervised at 2 AM.
