Words matter.

"Pedestrian walked into the path of the car" implies that the car had right of way and that the pedestrian was in the wrong. Perhaps the pedestrian stepped out onto the road without looking? A tragic incident but you can hardly blame the driver for an inattentive pedestrian, can you?

Wait, the pedestrian was on the sidewalk? The driver exited a parking lot? Since the pedestrian had the right of way, while technically true, "the path of the car" is highly misleading.
