I hope that the cop's statement was a generic one and not based on the type or severity of injuries that the pedestrian received.Indeed, the police who knocked looking for video said they may need the video in case she does not make it :-(
That is a 4 way stop, you can see in the video the Jeep was stopped and then made the left turn at a high rate of speed and hit her.
And if you watch some of the dashcam videos on YT of the accidents in rain and snow the drivers are flying! They drive as fast and as close to other cars like it was a sunny, spring day!Having your windscreen fogged up or covered in snow mist surely count as driving without due care and attention?
Here in the UK the weathers not as extreme but in the winter months the number of cars you see driving with just a 2” diameter clear screen hole in their windscreen is shocking, even worse are the people who don’t properly clear snow of their windscreens or the roof which when warmed up comes flying off with harder than normal stop.
Based on how fast the car was going I did not expect that. Very lucky.I have an update, which I got from the local newspaper.
The girl is in the hospital, with non life threatening injuries - so that is good.
Unfortunately, the reason she was hit - drunk driver!
