2 teens severely injured in pedestrian accident with motorist

Generally, where a pedestrian is crossing at an intersection in New York, a driver who has sufficient time to see the person walking ahead has a duty to slow down and avoid a collision with the pedestrian. Going full steam ahead while people are properly crossing the street in front of you is a lack of control that constitutes negligence, and will usually lead to liability for causing the pedestrian accident. In many instances, however, it is the pedestrian who is negligent due to such offenses as jaywalking, running out in front of a moving car, and walking on a highway in dark clothes at night.
