The officer was probably playing on their computer or phone. I can’t see any reason other than that. The person is clearly in the middle of the road

Gee, I dunno.. maybe the massive homeless tent complex on the sidewalk distracted him. If he's on patrol then yea.. it's part of his job to be a little distracted when driving around.

Let's not forget kids.. don't stand in the middle of the road and expect not to get hit by a car. It's literally the golden rule of road safety.

Edit: Had to add "of road safety" because apparently people don't understand context. Also. Both are in the wrong here, but this is obviously an accident which involves fault on both parties. Wouldn't of happened if he hadn't been standing in the road though.. the cop is at less of a fault IMO.

Nobody is right in this situation. The officer should be paying attention to the road. The person who got hit shouldn’t have been there
