  1. I don’t understand how this happened. This is a 4 way intersection in yehupitzville with no sidewalks, lighting or crosswalks, not pedestrian friendly at all.

  2. @qsman Have you been to the area lately?
    It’s actually a 4-way intersection with crosswalks and lights in all directions.
    She was on the crosswalk, and the driver passed a red.
