  1. Come on! If it’s dark, raining and very late in the night, how can anyone expect a woman to stop every time she hits a bump in the road??? I’m sorry for the victim but wearing dark clothing walking along a busy road is not very smart. If anyone should be charged it ought to be the first person who hit him. They should have gotten out of their car and dragged him off the road or put flares out around his body to alert other drivers. Of course, if it’s dark AND raining, they take the chance of getting hit themselves. So, never mind. Charge the victim for being careless but don’t charge anyone else.
