I think you've gotten a little carried away with this. Did she do everything she could to keep herself safe, including complaining about the unsafe condition of the road, crossing at the safest place, taking off her headphones and looking carefully while crossing? The roads are never going to be 100% safe, so there are always tradeoffs. It would seem she set her tradeoff point at not saying anything and not being very worried about the traffic. She paid the price. We can all learn something from that, but blame and guilt are not part of that.
