    I'd say the Person who was crossing, because if the PT cruiser didn't hit the suv, it would have totally hit the person full blown.

    Its kinda everybodys fault, the person in the SUV shouldnt have seen the person and slowed down, but the person shouldnt have been crossing, and you are just not supposed to run Reds.

    Wow, and that determination was made due to the clarity of the stop lights in the video....................

    Since I could not see the color of the lights, my guess would be the PT cruiser was at fault because you can see the vehicles going in the opposite direction coming to a stop because their light turned red, thus I am assuming the light turned red for the PT cruiser as well. The pedestrian was late crossing the light, but had almost made it to the other side when the lights had gone red. That pedestrian was squashed like a bug.

    I'd like to add to this... I think the PT ran the red light due the other vehicles seen in the video. In doing so, running the light, it caused the person in the vehicle that flipped to swerve to avoid hitting the PT. This is what, I believe, caused the accident. IF the PT had not ran the intersection I would say the other car would have been able to switch lanes and avoid the walker.... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I would be willing to say they both ran red lights. The light does not instantly turn green as soon as the other turns red, there is a 4-5 second delay. PT ran red, SUV was speeding and went through the intersection too early, and pedestrian is an idiot for not looking before crossing the street.

    Watch very closely, you have to really look to see it, but the PT cruiser slows down as they get to the light. You can tell as it noses down slightly . Somebody wasn't paying attention in the car and never noticed the light . /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Most communities that I have lived in no matter what the color of the light pedestrians have right of way.
    I'm not saying that's right or wrong, but the evidence points to the PT cruiser being at fault for running the light.

    Some folks shouldn't be allowed to breathe, let alone breed or drive. /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    This is correct but if you're walking across the street on a red light, you're not a pedestrian IMO, you're a jay walker, which means you're doing something illegal, and have no more right to use the roadway illegally than anyone else despite your mode of transportation.

    Why can't people just read the [darn] laws?????????????????? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    If the pedestrian entered the crosswalk and had the light, then he was in the right.

    Since all of y'all eagle eyed frizzy haired freaks apparently can see a red light somewhere in that video, I'm sure there's a law school that's willing to take your money.

    Now since there is no visible red light, the first person to reach the line technically would have the right away, but that can't be decided since the vehicle from the right, the limit line is not visible.

    So in the end, it just really amazes me, and I mean it really does amaze me since I've been involved in some goofy ass arguments on this website that there's actually people arguing this, but then again we all know there's an admitted wannabe ambulance chaser involved.

    So the lesson here folks is that assumption is the mother of all [darn] ups and there's definately some thirst for the STFU Kool-Aid in this crowd.......
