  1. I was at the scene after it had been blocked off. I wondered what happened because I could not be sure from a distance. When the sun starts to go down it creates more shadows. I hope the man gets better. I’m also glad the driver was not under the influence. There is a reason why crosswalks aren’t placed in certain locations.
