Note in this article, the mother was crossing the street with the child and the vehicle was approaching the intersection and the light changed green when the vehicle approached the intersection. Not only didn't the driver see the child but apparently didn't see the mother. Not sure what the pedestrian laws in Georgia are but there were no charges filed. Amazing, If one car hits another in the rear, the driver of the car that hit the vehicle in front is charged for not having there vehicle under control and I believe that is the case in most states but no charges filed in this case. y: Valdosta Police Department Email Updated: Mon 11:01 AM, Aug 12, 2013 Press Release: Valdosta Police Department On August 10, 2013 at approximately 9:20 PM, the Valdosta Police Department responded to the intersection of GA 125 (Bemiss Road) and Guest Road in reference to a vehicle accident involving a pedestrian being struck.
