How tragic. People should never assume that since they are in a cross walk that the car "sees" them.

I drive past there every day and around that time the sun is so blinding. It is impossible to see anything on beach street. Can tell you how many times I have had to squint and drive like 10mph through that intersection ... I hope he pulls through
