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.
@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.
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.
