The BPD states that Brooks was transported to a hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
“The conventional wisdom is that the pedestrian always has the right of way. This is not always the case and creates a dangerous situation. Many pedestrian deaths and injuries can be avoided by both drivers and pedestrians being alert and cautious,” said said the attorneys from Lexton Law, a California personal injury law firm.
