Commenters on here and at WaPo are missing the point in favor of playing the blame game. From a systems perspective, it is irrelevant whether the driver or the pedestrian was at fault in this or any case. Our current road network would fail a risk assessment; they are not sufficiently protecting users. More pedestrians are dying every year than in 9/11. The system ( in this case the built environment) has to be altered so that when inevitable human error happens, it does not have fatal consequences. This IS possible, but it requires a change in mindset of traffic engineers.
