Hwy. 3 is no place for walking or jogging or pushing baby stroller with child on top and one in it, 911 has calls on such as this. There is no shoulder on this road, and especially at night with walkers wearing dark clothe. You are up on them before you realize it, Your heart goes up in your throat very scary. So walkers need to be aware of the traffic.

How do they know Hammond was wearing a seatbelt if he was out of the vehicle rendering aid until EMS arrived???? Not saying he did anything wrong. Just curious.

Collision is a understated word that downplays the event?

See and avoid is the rule for drivers. Pedestrians have the right of way. Youth, speed and immaturity kills. Unlike the lawyer recently running over a senior citizen and getting cleared by the town police, newspaper and the court this individual will suffer the charges of vehicular homicide unless he can afford a bailey lawyer?
