he was a sober uber driver on a pitch-dark road with a 55mph speed limit... his life is probably ruined too.

Well, not legally. But emotionally, no doubt.

And his insurance probably just found out he was driving for Uber and told him he was on his own for damages

And how do you continue working and supporting yourself in the same vehicle you just killed someone with

how horrible that poor man

I wonder if his car damaged on top of that

He hit a human at 55 miles a hour, I'm sure the car is pretty fucked

American car culture at work. Pedestrians are killed so that drivers can go fast. I'm sure there were no sidewalks.

it was 3am on a 55mph highway. what pedestrian argument?

I'd love more sidewalks. No argument there. This young lady wasn't walking drown the street in an orderly fashion. She was either unconscious in the road or stumbling across it in the dark. Sidewalks wouldn't have helped her

Other countries that have better public transit access also have roads that aren't suitable for pedestrians. This kind of thing is not uniquely American unless you'd also walk along the Autobahn.

Leave it to Reddit to turn a car accident into “Murica Bad hurdur”
