    Well considering that is an intersection, plus it has crosswalks, I would think the truck driver is at fault considering they didn’t yield to a pedestrian.

      Actually there is only a cross walk on one side of the intersection. She was crossing about fifty feet up the road on the opposite side of the crosswalk. Still so sad, I hope both driver and pedestrian are ok.
