    This is absolutely tragic. Sadly, I’m not surprised. The design of that parking lot is not friendly to pedestrians. Folks driving in and out are impatient and disregard those on foot. You feel like “Frogger” walking into and out of the store. I am so sorry for the family friends of the victim experiencing this preventable tragedy right before Thanksgiving. Surely lessons can be learned here to prevent it from happening again in the future. Please? Buying bulk goods shouldn’t put a person’s life at risk.
