    I don’t know the details of this accident ,but.I suggest , the police (or Whoever in the Government) call the attention of pedestrians for the danger to wear dark clothes in the dark.Here ,in Pine Glen RD ,first STOP sign coming from 3rd Line ;people dressing in black just step on the road never even stop to see if the drivers saw them or not – they just cross . Twice{same place) I thanked God for me being alert enough to seeing this pedestrians come from nowhere .(bikers with no light ,dressed in dark clothes are just as bad)Thanks, Lavinia.
