What I read was that the man crossed the street to get his paper and was hit. You just cannot cross a street without looking. We all make mistakes and his was deadly.

You are also assuming he was actually in the street when he was hit. He was in his driveway according to the man that struck him.

The grandfather that I never got to know was also killed that way. He was standing on the sidewalk next to the road when a big truck jump and ran over him. Terrible accident. So sorry for the family. Prayers going to both families.

If he was in his driveway why was "the man that hit him" not charged.....clearly that's not in the road.

And that is exactly all it (assuming) would be since the accident was investigated and no charges were filed.

Sorry for your loss as well. Amazing how many forget the ones that are really affected by tragedies, accident of not. Never knew my grandad that was shot in Atlanta in 1938. He was a trolley operator and had stopped to break up a fight, not knowing a friend of one of the men in the fight had a gun.

And since when was crossing the street without looking to see if any cars are coming (something we are all taught from an early age) ok. There are no crosswalks on vincent mtn road. It is called an accident and investigations are made just for that. He unfortunately walked in front of a moving car and no charges were filed. No alcohol invoved, no speeding, and no hitting someone in the driveway. Why is everyone who wasnt there trying to say what the investigation has proven to be just an unfortunate accident. God bless the families of both persons involved.

Just to set the record straight he did NOT walk in front of a car. He was struck at the edge of the road or driveway. It was PURELY an accident.
