The sadness of Mrs. Chun's death is somewhat eased by the knowledge that her husband was with her and ready to assist when she crossed over.

The moral for the rest of us isn't so much to be "careful", but more that we should be "prepared" by living a spiritually aware and focused life, as did Mrs. Chun. For none of us knoweth the day or the hour.

I think the message from this story is that pedestrians should not assume all vehicles will stop.

I am sorry that this woman died because she didn't look and make eye contact with the driver.

Sometimes pedestrians already crossing see the car coming but can't move fast enough to get out of the way. Sometimes there's little defense against an inattentive driver.

and this is why drivers over 60 should be tested on a yearly basis.

Maybe the moral is that old people such sh*t at driving and should be retested/taken off the road?

I wonder why the driver who hit her wasn't cited or arrested? Wasn't the driver at fault for not stopping at the crosswalk when people were crossing?

I believe what she dreamed. After my husband passed away two years ago, I started getting signs from him. I used to be a doubter, no more. My whole belief in the afterlife took a 180 degree turn. Folks, those who passed away are still with us in spirit...and I'm not talking mind, I'm talking presence.

It is comforting knowing her late husband was still watching over her.

No doubt they are together now and at peace.

*The big problem I see at crosswalks, is when one car will stop for a pedestrian in lane A, but another car in lane B, which is also traveling in the same direction...keeps on going forward...because they either cannot see the pedestrian crossing or are too impatient to slow down and see if someone really is crossing.

Sometimes there are two cars in lane A...and both are approaching a crosswalk.

The first car will stop to let the pedestrian cross, but the car BEHIND the first car will change lanes to drive around the first car, and wind up hitting the pedestrian in the crosswalk.

That is why I often hesitate to stop for a pedestrian to let him cross, esp. if I know there are multiple lanes of traffic with many cars behind me.

The husband did warn her to be careful...
We all need to be careful in everything we do whether its driving or crossing the street.
But of course we dont, we get distracted and then we suffer the consequences. At least she can join her husband now and be together.

Idiot. This woman died because a car hit her,NOT because she didn't make eye contact w/the driver. The driver apparently wasn't making eye contact w/his surroundings.

Yes, but also distractions like illegal use of cell phones and LACK OF pedestrian courtesy can cause accidents. This also applies to young drivers as well as seniors. It's confusing when some drivers stop and the car in the other lane keeps going so you have to be sure all the cars stop for you.

You are a sick, terrible for even bring up rail in this context. You should be ashamed of yourself. Anti-rail people have no shame.

Very sad. And moreso, proof that love spans the inevitable.

And truly that love never dies only goes on for many a time and in essence, held in time, forever.

And that's why in some countries there are zig-zag lines for some distance before the crossing, and drivers are not allowed to pass another vehicle when they're between those lines. They have a pole at each end of the crossing with a light on top, or specific signal (yellow ball) so approaching drivers know (should see) there's a crossing, even if they don't see the zig-zag lines, or the crossing painted on the road, as you wouldn't in heavy traffic. In heavy traffic you'd see the big poles with lights on top, right? And as another aid to increase visibility, no cars can park within about three car lengths of the crossing. Here, you can't even see a pedestrian waiting to cross, so you can't slow gently, because they're masked by parked cars. Especially if they're short, old ladies! There's also so much more driver discipline in other countries. Pedestrians elsewhere know that when they step foot on the crossing, cars are going to stop (because they can be seen; see above). Here's it's like Death Race 2000! The Transportation folks should be improving signage on both the road and at each end of the crossing, and restricting parking close to the crossing. Trust me... I'm European. We've been doing it this way for decades, but you guys are still wiping each other out on crossings. There's no excuse for it.

Here you go again believing in myths, when people take thing for advantages and forget what there doing acident do happen, and with spirits I dont believe any of this, what you have to look is that people bump in with you during daylight hours not the died one there gone cant do any harms
