A turtle rider sent us this video of a hit and run from the intersection of Dilla and Purchase Street in Milford:
Obviously the video is disturbing because the dude gets hit by a car, and the guy in the truck is a scumbag for not stopping. However, here’s what that intersection looks like from the driver’s perspective:
Yea, it’s a light, not a stop sign. If you have the green light you have the right of way. And I cannot STAND these idiot pedestrians who don’t understand how a crosswalk works at a light. If there is a light, you press the walk button, or wait until there are no cars coming. Then you don’t get hit by a car. Problem solved.
Look, there’s no one who respects a crosswalk more than I do. When I see people standing by one I ALWAYS stop. It’s just what I’m all about. All I want is a little wave from you, acknowledging how awesome I am, because most drivers don’t respect a crosswalk, which makes me one of the “good ones.”
But the rules change if there’s a light involved. At that point you have a fair and safe opportunity to cross the street. You press the walk button, and you walk when the machine tells you to. Then you don’t get hit.
But so many times I see morons who think that pedestrians ALWAYS have the right of way. And this guy was one of those morons. He doesn’t even look, and walks directly into traffic. Next thing you know – POW – vagrant sandwich:
Even so, the guy driving the truck is still hot garbo for hitting someone like this and just driving off. As it turns out the vagrant was OK, and I’m sure it’s not the last time he’ll be hit by a car while walking directly into traffic.
But yea, if you know who the owner of the truck is please let us know. And if you are the owner you should probably just check in with the police before we find out.
