that street is so far to cross,,,,and there are camaras... so i think that all the drivers drive a high speed to not get a ticket for the camaras. so i just think that both have fault. cause i that day i was crossing the street with my children like 30 minutes before that happened. and to cross that street you have to see all the sides and you have to run to cross that street. also not because you see any signal to walk you have to walk ... firts see until the car the one have to make a right turn HAVE TO STOP AND then you can go.

There are cameras there for people who run red lights. If Hawthorne P.D. does their job correctly they will view the cameras and make justice for the mother and son who are critically injured unless the cameras function differently. Drivers must not be on a rush and look for pedestrians.Pedestrians have the right of way no matter what according to the DMV booklets. The driver was most likely distracted and responsible for the accident. That intersection where she crossed is huge and it has cameras on 4 corners, he must of look.The man is guilty because he did not look.

As for the mother and the child wish them the best. Sometimes as a pedestrian you do scan your eyes but it varies at what velocity the driver was coming, if you cross and don't see any drivers and the driver is coming at a high speed subject cant predict it. Beside according to the DMV pedestrians have the right of way not matter what and the DRIVER MUST SCAN THEIR EYES AT ALL TIMES is the drivers priority to look out for pedastrians or anything that could jeoprdize their life or the life of others while in a vehicle.
