    Some disagree with what happend to Sheri. If she was 1/2 or more across, then why was she not hit by an auto coming the opposite direction? She may of had the ok to cross when the light changed while she was about 1/2 or more across. Also she has the right of way per the state law? Why would you run to the driver to see how he was doing when she was the one laying on road? Why did he run and have a blood test done? Was he speeding? She had family. what does the police report say?

    My sister, Teresa(below) WAS an unfortunate witness 2 this awful tragedy. I actually had 2 go 2 the scene right after it occured 2 pick up my sister & saw firsthand the very shocked & sad atmosphere that surrounded the scene. My heart & thoughts go out 2 the man who accidently hit the woman. I'm sure his life will never b the same unfortunately. My prayers have also been 4 the woman who's life ended n the blink of an eye. My family & others have had thoughts & concern that everyone is finding it very odd that there has been no talk about the woman's family or friends anywhere (radio,t.v.or newspaper)On the scene my sister saw the cop going through the woman's bag & heard him say she had no Identification no phone no wallet no money on her. We all r wondering if this poor woman may have been w/o anyone around n her life, & i agree the photo of her does look very odd n a way! Well the only hope i have is that if indeed she didnt have anyone hopefully she is n a better place now. :(

    that picture of the pedestrian looks like it was taken in the jail???? Was she intoxicated when crossing the road and did not realize what she was doing?

    I was a witness of this accident, Sheri Haven landed not 10 feet in front of my car, I saw the entire thing! People need to understand that this poor man Mr. Moore was in no way at fault for hitting this women. She was nearly hit by an SUV that had to lock breaks to avoid hitting her, and because of that, two cars behide the SUV the buick had to quickly swerve into the next lane over to avoid an accident, not knowing that a women trying to cross the road was the reason for the sudden stop. Immediatly after switching lanes, there she was and there he hit her! No chance, no hope, no way he could have avoided it. He WASN'T speeding, he WASN'T being careless, this IS NOT his fault. It is no ones fault but the women, SHE made the decision to cross. People rushed to the women to try and help, I rushed to the man, the poor man, in shock terrified, feeling guilt, I let him know "God doesn't blame you, it is NOT your fault". Anyone that says different is wrong, I was there, I know, GOD KNOWS!!!

    PEOPLE ARE IN TOO BIG OF A HURRY AND THINK THAT THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO WHAT THEY WANT AT ANY GIVEN TIME...THE WORLD REVOLVES AROUND THEM...JUST NOT SO ALL PEOPLE SHOULD RESPECT OTHERS AND JUST PALIN SLOW DOWN, TAKE A BREATH, AND DO THE RIGHT THING. MAY GOD BE WITH THIS FAMILY FOR I KNOW THAT SHE SHALL BE MISSED. LIFE IS WAY TOO LONG TO LIVE LIKE MOST OF US LIVE!

    Amanda, I don't believe anyone has claimed pedestrians have no rights. I doubt the driver thought "she's jaywalking, so let's run her down." But did the driver have any opportunity to stop or otherwise avoid the collision? Maybe, maybe not; that's for the police to determine. Unfortunately, crossing Nicholasville Road at the end of morning rush hour against the light turned out to be a tragic choice. My prayers for the pedestrian's family and the driver...

    Lexington is not pedestrian friendly. You take your life in your hands when you walk anywhere, whether you have the 'light' with you or not. You might as well paint a target on your back if you try to walk, or bike, in this town.

    Amanda, oh, so because the light was green for the 2000 pound vehicle traveling at 45 miles an hour, the woman walking can just walk in front of whatever she feels? Rights? Come on... common sense. Let's walk in front of traffic because I'm too impatient to wait for the crossing light.
