Driver not @ fault ?

The licence needs to be suspended immediately pending the outcome of an investigation before he / she kills someone else.

And now for all the armchair pundits to give their detailed analysis & conclusions how the incident occurred from the extremely vague Echo report.

The pedestrian was injured and went to Southend Hospital, his foot is broken in several places and waiting to see a surgeon! All said both parties were lucky this wasn't more serious. Southchurch is a very busy road often people cross from Tesco to Sainsburys or come out the Exchange, makes the need to keep speed to the legal limit, thank goodness the pedestrian wasn't 1 foot further as he would probably now be dead. All very lucky

I am getting fed up hearing how these incidents are pedestrians at fault. Its about time motorists started to slow up around town. You are driving a lethal weapon.
I am going for walk with my shotgun, loaded and safety off, if it goes off and someone is injured I am going to blame tham
