    Not sure who was at fault here, but it never hurts to ask everybody to look twice, obey traffic signals and signs, and take that extra second to make sure all is clear. Other than a mechanical failure, there are no such things as accidents…someone is always at fault and we are all guilty at one time or another. But we cal all be more careful. Please…lives depend on it.
