A woman dies as a result of Megabus accident

When crossing the street you must look in all directions even if you have the right of way. For ages, people have heard that “the pedestrian has the right of way”. This is only true when crossing in a crosswalk with the right of way. Otherwise, the automobiles have the right of way. Never cross the street mid-block. In this sad case, the woman was crossing in the crosswalk and had the right of way and still got hit by a bus that was making a left turn. Personally, I always attempt to make eye contact with the driver of a turning vehicle before I cross the street. If you are ever injured as a pedestrian be sure you tell the police you were in the crosswalk when you were hit even if the hit takes you out of the crosswalk. If you are injured as a result of being hit by an automobile, bus or truck, please call the Horwitz Law Group at 312-641-9200 or visit www.thehorwitzlawgroup.com
