What's the chances the dangerous driver had been drinking. Hope the lady makes a full recovery.

I hope the lady makes a full recovery too, but why the drunk quote? And why the driver and not the pedestrian?
Typical of somebody with zero knowledge of anything. Wait for the facts

Because a man has been arrested for causing serious injury by driving dangerously. That rather suggests to me the driver was at fault and not the pedestrian.

Pedestrians can sometimes be careless when crossing the road. Though it's too early to be sure, this makes it look as if the pedestrian was not at fault, and seems to show yet again that we can be affected by driver behaviour without even leaving the pavement.
