I am very sorry for this person’s family/friends.

Wherever you go in Athens, though, a lot of people (including students and “academics”) act like they don’t know what crosswalks are.

Couple this with everyone driving over the speed limit and being distracted by cellphones—-how does it not happen everyday?

Our sincere condolences for your loss. However, Your beef is with the police, who are the source of the information that we published.

Upon contemplation, the term "homeless " has been removed from the story. We do not believe whether your sister was housed or not is relevant.

I am afraid to cross the Atlanta highway at a crosswalk.
