The driver was eventually sentenced to 10 years in prison.
The victim's family, their attorney and HPU created a safety fund following that crash.
Roughly $60,000 was collected to pay for safety improvements at the crosswalk, but talks with the DOT were unsuccessful and all the money was returned.
"Nothing changed in spite of the efforts of the family, this law firm and at least some at HPU to try and address the problem," said Mike Cruise, attorney at Leavitt Yamane & Soldner. "People said it's just a matter of time before it happens again, so it's very sad to hear it has happened again."
So will more safety features be added this time around? The DOT says it won't consider it until the investigation is complete.
