    Wral news stated the driver was charged with some infraction( I can't rememeber just what). Too bad the homeless did not seek the crosswalk or have reflective clothing. this is just sad all the way around. May this be a turning point for these homeless to get the help they need to get on their feet again in terms of self sustaining lives.
