Another fine example of Darwin's Theory
A 15-year-old Utah girl died after being run over by a pickup truck while she lay sunbathing in the driveway of their home, police said on Monday.
Marli Hamblin, a cheerleader from Syracuse, Utah, who had recently made her high school's squad, was listening to music through her headphones and likely did not notice when her older sister began to reverse the Chevrolet truck towards her, Syracuse police and the family's Facebook page said.
People have no business on surfaces where vehicles travel period.
People keep getting struck by cars and we keep blaming the drivers for various reasons. When the impetus needs to be more on the pedestrians. We should be taught that if you venture onto a street, you'll be run over struck down dead. Run across the intersection don't walk. Stop assuming that every driver has his undivided attention on the road.
Sorry about the girl, but really? In the driveway?? Uh, we sunbath on the lawn, on the deck, on the patio - but no, not the driveway.
