Now, don't get after grandma! No charges were filed! Maybe he stepped in front of the car.

This story should never have been printed. Where do you get your information? The man was crossing the street and the woman did not see him in the fog and darkness. If you lived there you would see how people go so fast through that town. With no lighting on the highway this poor man did not have a chance. The police report did not even officially come out. The family is devasated, then to say their loved one "stepped out in front of the car" You can't step out infront of a car on that highway for God's sake. Get your facts right before you print such trash.

I am so sorry. I didn't mean to cause anyone any pain with my thoughtless comment. Please forgive me.

Look both ways! I hate it when people run out in front of my car. Luckily I have better reflexes than an 88 year old. People need to walk defensively, just like drivers are supposed to drive defensively.

(my condolences to the pedestrian, and my thoughts are also with the poor driver who has to live with this now)
