I’m sure the Cliffs was somehow responsible for this one too.

wow, Reinvent an accident from a news story. amazing. You should change your name to Clara Voyant

Very sad situation that can be prevented: First, in unfamiliar areas, don’t be in a hurry, second, as a driver, make sure you are looking both to the left and the right, including the crosswalk, not just the roadway, and lastly, as a pedestrian, make eye contact with the driver before you step out in front of their vehicle. Condolences to the family of the woman killed.
