    last i checked it was the driver who was responsible for controlling where the car is steered. most of the time these kind of accidents are caused by idiots who have lead feet. It might have been a person who doesnt have a car and has no other choice but to walk. instead of placing blame why not just pray for the victim and their families.

    Yes, another person was walking in the road at night and got killed. I do hope that the Progressives dont take this as an opportunity to pave sidewalks down all streets and roads.

    There are no sidewalks! My questinon is "why was this person walking on the side of the road at 1:30am?"

    Sorry for someone who has meet there demise while walking. I would almost bet a dollar this person was wearing dark clothing and could not be seen at dark.

    I am just amazed how many idiots walk in the road after dark with dark clothes on? hey if you want to walk in the road, wear something that will reflect or something.

    If people would stop driving on the sidewalks, these types of "accidents" wouldn't happen!!

      Clearly the sidewalk on on Highway 258 North, near Dobbs Farm Rd. is a dangerous place to be around 1:30 a.m
