Really sad. I hope the driver does some jail time. Even after paying his debt, I hope he is never allowed to drive again.

Separately though, I agree with T. That crossing is crazy dangerous as a pedestrian. There's simply no way to look far enough up Charlton to see if the path is free before crossing at the speed cars travel this road. Given how many people use the rail trail, I think it's wise to make some infrastructure changes. Charlton should have reduced speed signs and possibly rumble strips at the base of the hill (cheap). Ideally it would have a pedestrian-operated crosswalk too, but that's more expensive.
