Fyi I didn't "dart" in the street I was walking, there was no car in any lane and she was all way at her house which is far... she should've been speeding through a yellow light talking on her cell phone maybe i would'nt have gotten hit, you guys don't know the story so don't make up stuff...

    So sorry this had to happen to this child, I don't know what happened in this case, but I wish people would be more careful crossing the road in front of traffic. Just this week I saw an older child on a bike cross the road in front of several cars coming, cars had to slow down to miss the kid. Please be careful crossing the road.

    So far as best I can recall now it sits at 4-0 vehicles v Civilian. Two on Western one on Hwy 17 and now on on gum branch. I'm sure there are others that I have forgotten about. It not only takes place here in OC but all over the country. Here in OC city of Jville there is many places that a bridge type cross walk could benefit many, question is would they the use it? Some reason human kind find it easier to dodge traffic than to use a cross walk. Yes the bridge concept is costly yet which is more important the life of a person or the bridge? I feel sorry for those who attempted there fate in the past and in the future. We are not invincible when it comes to the laws of nature, chances are it will win.
