an article by RI Car Accident lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


Anytime a moving vehicle hits a pedestrian in Rhode Island, the results can be catastrophic or fatal. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that nearly 4800 pedestrians were killed in 2012 in crashes involving a motor vehicle. In addition, there were 76,000 pedestrian injuries recorded in the same year.


Not every  RI car accident that involves a pedestrian occurs at a dangerous intersections or crosswalks. In fact, many walkers believe they have the right of way in nearly every situation along the Providence roadways, and often fail to obey RI traffic related laws enacted for their protection. However, one of the leading causes of pedestrian injuries and fatalities involves alcohol impairment, which plays a key factor in nearly half of all pedestrian deaths.


Determining Responsibility for a Rhode Island Pedestrian accident

Often times, it is challenging to determine which party is at fault or responsible for causing the accident in Rhode Island. In almost every incident, the case will be determined by negligence, which refers to the careless or reckless action of one or both parties. In most motorist/pedestrian accidents, determining the right-of-way can be confusing.

On the Saturday before McCarthy died, Vanwagner posted photos of what was left of his vehicle on his Facebook page and wrote, “That’s her front end after I got done with her lol.” He signed that message with a smiley face.


Under a second photo, he commented: “I’m all good slept a day in the hospital then came home and did yard work lol.”


Vanwagner acknowledged posting the images and said in an interview Wednesday, “I didn’t even know I hit somebody. I just thought I hit something.” The photos and the accompanying comments were deleted Wednesday night.


It was on Wednesday, he added, that he learned that “another kid died” as Vanwagner was heading to a friend’s home in north Minneapolis.


“Police came and arrested me [Wednesday] morning and let me out because the charges won’t be coming for months,” he said.

Vanwagner said, “I know I’m looking at spending time in prison, so I’m trying to spend as much time as I can with my 18-month-old.”

Steven M. Sweat's curator insight, March 25, 2014 12:25 PM

Municipalities across California have begun stepping up law enforcement efforts on pedestrian traffic laws.  This comes on the heels of a spike across the Golden State in pedestrian injuries and fatalities.  This video is a prime example of people failing to abide by the California Vehicle Code sections which require motor vehicle operators to yield the right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks and require pedestrians to not enter roadways unless and until it it safe to do so.
