Like you watch a different video? He looked the other way, then started to cross. He only looks in the direction of the Civic after starting to cross. When he realized that the Civic was almost upon him, then he tries to reverse course, slips, and is cleared away. Yes, the Civic was going fast, but the Civic will fix, while the young man is sadly dead. R.I.P.

This...."Yes, the Civic was going fast, but the Civic will fix, while the young man is sadly dead. R.I.P."

And what happens to the driver of the Civic now?

Remember some Road Safety videos a while back showing what can be avoided if going that bit slower?

He'll maybe be charged/convicted. He may serve some time, but the young man will remain dead. If you had to choose between the two, which would you rather?

Pedestrians have responsibility for their own safety too. Crossing a road is a life or death situation that should be taken seriously. RIP to the youth

Driver did not hit the pedestrian out of the roadway. .

How do you all know the Civic was speeding?
Was there a speedometer at the bottom of the CCTV footage?

Is because of dotishness like this the civic driver extremely lucky there was footage.

the dude who died did not use the old rule for crossing ''look left then right then cross '',when my wife started driving i told her in certain areas you need to be extra cautious cause people cross the road all how and do not respect cars !

In my examination of the incident, I will say two things wrong. 1, the pedestrian dart out from behind a car without looking both ways, and 2, the driver could have been going slower. He might of still hit the guy, but did less damage.

Speed = Distance / Time

Distance and Time are available in the video

Who gonna probe that? Ttps?

They only gonna check "if" driver was drunk.

If driver hit pedestrian out of road parameters and driver stopping distance.

The young man looked to his left just before crossing the road but only looked to his right when he was actually crossing the road. He had a split second to try and stop but the car was speeding so much that it was impossible.

I do not understand how people are making excuses for the driver. If he was going within the speed limit Ezekiel Burton might have been alive today.

Where are all those people who are clamouring for an increase in the speed limit to 100 kph?

It's sad that it happened but if the pedestrian had stopped and looked both ways (right, left and right again) he would have seen the civic coming and would still be around today.
My thoughts on the video:
The wingroad was driving down the middle-wrong side of the road. The guy who went to cross saw that and I guess assumed that he would be clear once the wingroad passed so he took a chance. The driver of the civic also was probably looking at the wingroad driving on the wrong side of the road and wasn't concentrating on the parked car the guy ran out from behind. The civic may have been going too fast for the conditions. i.e. Wet road, parked car with traffic on the other side, food stalls where pedestrians are around and may do this stupidness.
How many of us slow to a crawl in situations like this? I know that I had started even before this happened because I honestly don't want that weight of knocking down someone on my shoulders. Whether or not the driver gets charged it's not going to be easy living with knowing the outcome.
Take your time on the roads, if you've got to cross the road wait until there's no traffic and then cross or cross at a zebra crossing/traffic light.

time has come- perfect case where Side of the road vendors Should be REMOVED.
Yes its unfortunate what happened, yes the driver could have been going slower, BUT it all started with the Pedestrian NOT paying attention to the roads, and in this case bounce meh nah ghetto attitude got him no where except a coffin.
Now this driver may have to face charges of Involuntary Manslaughter.

Too many times pedestrians think they have the right to walk out into the road and cars must stop for them. Hope this serves as a lesson to them.
