    Where is the outrage for J-walking?! It's time for more senseless legislation to end the danger!

    Wildween: The correct terms that could be used are crash, collision or wreck. Accident is not correct, because it implies that someone is not at fault for the collision. This was a simple case of a pedestrian unlawfully entering the roadway. People that say the pedestrian ALWAYS have the right of way are misinformed.

    Ever heard of "jay-walking"?

    It was not a "wreck"... it was an "accident". Come-on, WRAL, you can do better than this.

    Once taking an NC driver's test the question was: A pedestrian is standing by the street waiting to cross and is not at a crosswalk -- who has the right-of-way? I answered "the vehicle" and it was marked wrong. I was told that pedestrians always have the right-of-way.

    the word should be "accident", not "wreck".

    WRAL....the term wreck is not usually used for such events. a wreck implies the car hit another car, or a tree or some inanimate object OFF of the travelled roadway.
