"I see this every day - people crossing without the light in the middle of the street, kids with head phones, skate boards and scooters," reader Carrie Kaplan wrote. "I would say usually it is not the driver's fault. People, look please before you cross."
Reader NAL responded, "It is also drivers who make turns who don't realize that the pedestrian has the right of way."
And reader Rachel Nobel Fields said, "I think it's an awfully broad statement to say it's 'usually not the driver's fault. It's obvious from the article that the victim was not a 'kid with headphones, a skate board [or a] scooter.' And regardless of whether she was crossing illegally, the driver should have stopped."
