myselfami tells us more.
Okay, I was pretty unclear about specifics on this FML. The runner was barely tapped by the front bumper of my car. He fell, got back up, and limped off somewhere. The guy that was behind me doesn't have insurance. I have five stitches in my forehead from bashing it against the steering wheel. Kind of wish I wouldn't have stopped, honestly.

I honestly hate people like that, when you j walk, at least make sure no car is heading your way
at least you didn't murder them... no jal time, and think of the damage it would have done to your car... oh wait... you got rear ended..better hope they have insurance...
It wouldn't have been jail time for the OP unless the runner was within a crosswalk. Judging from this fml, however, it doesn't appear to be the case. If the runner was just running across the street at a random point and not using the crosswalk, the runner would have been at fault for any injuries, damages, etc. not the OP. It does suck that the after-effect of the OP stopping was to be immediately rear-ended though. Kinda makes you wonder if it was worth it.
FYL, but how could the guy/girl behind you know? he was wearing gray. So it's really not his/her fault.
One I thought she didn't hit the peep in grey. Secondly it is not the car that is behind because the peep in grey ran out so this caused this person to brake and the person behind didn't realize so she rear ended her by accident. I would sue the peep in grey. :):):);):
@111 *Facepalm* It IS the fault of the person behind the OP... you should be driving far enough behind that if the car in front of you brakes suddenly you can stop in good time. Guy in grey is at fault for being a retard but ultimately the accident is down to the the second driver. OP didn't hit the pedestrian (at least initially) but was still involved in an accident because the second driver was tailgating.
