The pedestrian was hit by the car and dragged on the sidewalk. The Camry then crashed into another light pole where it finally stopped with the pedestrian underneath.

Pedestrians are exposed to a high risk of accidents, even when they are not crossing the street. When a pedestrian is injured or killed in an accident where they did not add anyhow to cause it, they should file a lawsuit and seek a compensation claim for their injuries.
Hit-and-run accidents are complicated because there is no liable party.
If you were injured in a pedestrian accident or lost a loved one in such an accident, you should hire a pedestrian accident attorney who would guide you in the process.
