    Don was my brother-in-law’s cousin. This story makes the accident seem to be HIS fault. What it does not say was that Don was a very good 93 Y.O. Except for 2 broken hips inn the past. He had very few medical problems. And he recovered from those very quickly. I saw him every year at Thanksgiving, except this year he wnet to a friend’s house for dinner. He was a special person and I hope that friver gets exactly what she has coming to her either in this world or the next.

    How was it her fault? Shouldn’t one look before one crosses the road? Was he in a crosswalk? Accidents happen, it doesn’t mean you have to wish doom upon someone. Don’t you think she’s suffering over the accident? Everyone is so quick to pass judgement…

    I agree with Jim. If you were not there when the accident occurred you can not say who was at fault or pass judgement on the other person. While it is sad that a life was lost, it was an ACCIDENT. I am quite sure the driver of the car is suffering as well. She could be a wonderful person whose life has been changed forever by this accident.

    She should he charged with involuntary manslaughter. I was there. She was shaken up but still. I also saw things a 15 year old should never have to see

    Egads folks, show some compassion. I am saddened by the gentleman’s death, as well sad foer the driver. We need not speculate on the cause(s) that’s for the law enforcement professionals. I hope I live to at least 93.

    I am fairlly certain the driver of the car did not wake up on Saturday with the intention of hitting a pedestrian. Before we know ALL facts, can we refrain from passing judgement, please. I don’t know the driver or the victim, but I am certainly am saddened by this gentleman’s death but also my heart goes out to the driver of the car. She will live with this for the rest of her life.

    Kitty needs to lighten up, for Pete’s sake. I will not take sides, I was not there to witness the event, did she ever hear of the word ACCIDENT?
