There was a case in which the insurance company asked the driver who hit a pedestrian who was jaywalking in the dark at dawn, paying 65% of the negligence.



In the dark dawn, a driver who was driving on a three-lane road on a four-lane road struck a person who was jaywalking.



The driver continued driving when the traffic light changed from a red light to a green light before the crosswalk.



Moments later, a small car moving ahead in the next lane saw a pedestrian and braked.



The driver, who later checked the brake lights of the next car, hurriedly applied the brakes, but could not avoid the accident.



As a result of this accident, the pedestrian suffered a fracture and cerebral hemorrhage, requiring treatment for over two years.



The cost of treatment is said to reach 380 million won.



The driver's position was that he did not understand the 65% negligence rate suggested by the insurance company even though the signal had changed and he did not speed.



A traffic expert who saw this explained that the percentage of negligence could vary depending on the signal when the pedestrian crossed the center line while jaywalking.



If the signal changed after the pedestrian had already crossed the center line, the driver's negligence could be seen more clearly, but the accident said the signal appears to have changed before that.
