    There is a crosswalk at the intersection of Payton and Poole Rd. It is directly where the photographer is taking the picture from and you can see it if you open up the picture and it states "the unidentified man tried to cross the Peyton Street intersection on foot"

    There is a reason why crosswalks were made and certain areas are lit. Cross a street during the night in a non-lit area you risk potential road hazards at your own safety.
