Who was at fault? That’s what seems to be missing from the story.
With all the cameras around town, i would think it easy to pin that bit of info down.

Regardless, i wish the “adult pedestrian” well. …even though they could have been in the wrong.
Pedestrians do not always have the right of way… i mean this isn’t N.Y.C., where they get away with that.

If the officer wasn’t paying attention, well, then that will receive some nasty attention. Emergency responders are NOT impervious to, NOR exempt from, obeying intersection rules. While they should have priority, they still have to wait their turn.
