This was only one of three pedestrian deaths, yes, DEATHS that happened within the same twelve hour period last week.
This is carnage that would garner far more attention had it been three dead thrown from an automobile.
Our pedestrian versus auto annual death rate is nearly twice that of the 9/11 tragedy (5,000 versus 3,000.)
