“They had dark clothing on, it was night time, it was rainy, (and) it was foggy,” said Deputy Police Chief Daniel Parrillo.
“What’s the cause? There could be a number of different causes,” he said.
Distracted driving is often cited as a cause for accidents, but drivers aren’t the only ones who need to pay attention. Warwick police remind pedestrians that sometimes they’re at fault for some of these accidents, especially when they decide to cross a busy street where there’s not a crosswalk, which is a citable offence.
Pedestrians should walk to another town where there’s a crosswalk, so they at least won’t get a citation after they are mowed down.
