It depends on the circumstances.

If the pedestrian ran out in front of the care carelessly, it is the pedestrians fault for endangering their own safety.

If the driver of the car was speeding or not concentrating properly, it is the drivers fault for disobeying the rules of the road.

Police will examine eyewitness reports and CCTV recordings to determine which is to blame.

What is the Texas Law for yielding to a pedestrian?

As listed below, a pedestrian does not always have right of way. They must also yield right of way to vehicles. CHAPTER 552. PEDESTRIANS 552.002. PEDESTRIAN RIGHT-OF-WAY IF CONTROL SIGNAL PRESENT. (a) A pedestrian control signal displaying "Walk," "Don't Walk," or "Wait" applies to a pedestrian as provided by this section. (b) A pedestrian facing a "Walk" signal may proceed across a roadway in the direction of the signal, and the operator of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to the pedestrian. (c) A pedestrian may not start to cross a roadway in the direction of a "Don't Walk" signal or a "Wait" signal. A pedestrian who has partially crossed while the "Walk" signal is displayed shall proceed to a sidewalk or safety island while the "Don't Walk" signal or "Wait" signal is displayed. Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 165, § 1, effective. Sept. 1, 1995. 552.003. PEDESTRIAN RIGHT-OF-WAY AT CROSSWALK. (a) The operator of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing a roadway in a crosswalk if: (1) no traffic control signal is in place or in operation; and (2) the pedestrian is: (A) on the half of the roadway in which the vehicle is traveling; or (B) approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger. (b) Notwithstanding Subsection (a), a pedestrian may not suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and proceed into a crosswalk in the path of a vehicle so close that it is impossible for the vehicle operator to yield. (c) The operator of a vehicle approaching from the rear of a vehicle that is stopped at a crosswalk to permit a pedestrian to cross a roadway may not pass the stopped vehicle. Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 165, § 1, effective. Sept. 1, 1995. 552.005. CROSSING AT POINT OTHER THAN CROSSWALK.

(b) Between adjacent intersections at which traffic control signals are in operation, a pedestrian may cross only in a marked crosswalk. (c) A pedestrian may cross a roadway intersection diagonally only if and in the manner authorized by a traffic control device.

Because the signal was green. Because he wanted to be a zebra crossing. (This only works in areas where pedestrian crossings are striped in broad black-and-white stripes and called 'zebra crossings').

Can a pedestrian cross the street against a red light?

Pedestrian actions are governed by traffic lights also. You may not cross a lane of traffic which has the green light to proceed. If you are referring to a strictly 'pedestrian-control' signal (i.e.: walk-don't walk signal), the answer is definitely no.

What is the pedestrians law.?

In the U.S. and Canada the law is: * Cross on crosswalks (if a car hits a pedestrian in a crosswalk that's not a good thing! * Most crosswalks have either an automatic signal to tell the pedestrian when to cross or there is a button close by the pedestrian can push to change the crosswalk signal. * If pedestrians J-walk (not in a crosswalk) then it's not the driver's fault in most cases. * If the weather is bad it's up to the pedestrian to be aware as much as the driver of vehicles and if you go out dressed in black or any dark clothing and think that you have are the cock of the J-walk think again! If you have dark clothing on and were not giving drivers a chance to see you then charges may not be laid against the driver and you're on your own. NOTE: A pedestrian is just as responsible for walking even across a crosswalk as a driver is seeing them.
