Through investigation it was discovered that Party # 1 was walking in the roadway on Seventh St, approximately 200 feet south of Victor St. Party # 2, identified as Juan Solano, was driving northbound on Seventh St. Solano did not see Party # 1 in the roadway until Party # 1 was only a few feet in front of his vehicle.
