The manner in which the woman was struck was wholly negligent. The woman not only had a walk sign, she also walked in the crosswalk – she obeyed traffic laws and yet she was still struck by an 18-wheeler. The woman has a right to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault truck driver due to the fact that he failed to yield to her and the accident turned into a hit-and-run.
