I agree with Daniel if it was an 'accident'. Otherwise the driver should be charged. Drivers need to mindful of pedestrians.

Pedestrians also need to be mindful of cars. I see many people dressed in dark clothing crossing York Rd. at night not at crosswalks or intersections. Occasionally, someone gets hit.

I can't help but feel on more then one occassion that crossing at the intersection is more dangerous then the safety it is suppossed to provide. J walking is supposed to be dangerous but it seems sometimes like the lesser of two evils.

M. Sullivan, I have also witnessed that on my way home from work every morning I see about 4 to 5 people not wearing reflective clothing and on one occasion.

This lady is a dear friend of my daughter's nurse. I did not get the full story but either way it is tragic. AN odd twist to our family is that just about a few years ago my daughter's nurse at the time was running to the bus around 6 a.m on a dark Fall morning. She was struck and killed near Gersbecks. She had darted out in front of a car. The poor lady driving was really shook up. I think in most cases it is pedestrian error. People need to realize that they are not bigger than a moving car. You can be the best driver around but when someone darts in front of you, it is nearly impossible to avoid hitting them. The driver stayed on the scene. He/She took responsibility and stayed to aide the victim and police. Tragic for all. Very sad day for the victim and driver.
