    This was truly an accident. The person driving feel horrible for what happened. The elderly gentleman was not crossing in the crosswalk and evidently never saw the truck coming. The driver was not under the influence of drugs, alchohol or anything else. This was a very unfortunate accident. Our prayers are with the families of both parties.

    At the risk of sounding completely mean, doesn't the lights have the buttons you push for WALK/DON'T WALK??? If so, then shouldn't at least some of the blame go towards the man being a little careless?

    This was a true acident. The victim stepped out infront of a vehicle while the light was green. There are bushes at the intersection that makes for a blind spot. The Victim was pronounced dead today.
