    Can we get a clarification as to whether Mr. Andina was skateboarding or longboarding?

    The article does not provide sufficient information to determine which of those involved was at fault. There is no description of the location of the collision, and on which part of the roundabout it occurred could significantly change who is at fault. Additionally, while motorists are required to yield to pedestrians in legal crossings, they are not required to yeild to them elsewhere. Lastly, pedestrians do not have carte blanche to cross a street any time they feel like it in the US. It must first be safe to do so.

    Clearly the name needs to be released so students know who to watch out for. Obviously Lu Cao shouldn’t have a drivers’ license.

    Arielle you should be ashamed releasing the names of the victim and the driver especially since it was an accident. Respect peoples privacy.
