Police say the driver involved, who stopped at the scene, will not face any charges.

  1. People are becoming more careless out here in the suburbs in regards to crossing these fast roads. Wearing dark clothes, crossing and walking in the street outside of crosswalks. More and more people will die because of this attitude that you can just walk across these busy roads without care.
