Why was a pedestrian on the freeway??? And to be going south, means he was running across the freeway... Seriously, when driving a freeway you don't expect a pedestrial to run in front of you!!!

Who do you think will be blamed for this accident? It won't be the driver. The driver worked for the NHP so who do you think will be to blame? The pedestrian maybe? This is what happens most of the time. It happened to a friend of mines son, he wasn't in the wrong but he was found guilty and my roommate's son had the cops sitting out in front of our shared residence to try the intimidation tactic. We still got an attorney.
