At the time of impact she was within the crosswalk, having come from the side of the street opposite to the Defendantís lane of travel. It was not yet dark and area is reasonably well lit by street lights and a pizza restaurant located almost directly at the end of the cross walk. There were no obstructions to view as the vehicle approached the point of impact.
At the time of the accident the pedestrian was wearing a light blue jacket, jeans, pink boots and pink gloves. The impact occurred after she had crossed a full lane of travel and part way into the lane in which the Defendant was traveling.
