Life is dangerous enough without being reckless. Floret Kusi-Davies is dead and her child in critical condition after she attempted to cross the street without being within a crosswalk. WaPo reports she was also wearing dark clothing and rain had begin to fall.
If it’s important you get somewhere quick, being dead will make it even worse. Wait for the light.
I feel a physical pain thinking about how that baby is going to be motherless if it survives, and the poor person who did nothing wrong is going to have to live with the memory of striking and killing another human being. What could possibly be worth the chance of that kind of thing happening to you?
