sidewalk in front of a moving car and is

vehicle or the pedestrian?

Re: Negligent Homicide
Both, but at least where I am from, pedestrians always have the right of way. Hence drivers should be expecting the unexpected from others. If the driver is driving safely and within the speed limit, then his liability may be negligable. YOu should consult a lawyer.
