  Crossing the street is getting more deadly. Biden's infrastructure law could change that. Safety experts say the disparities in pedestrian deaths highlight longstanding transportation inequities favoring wealthy people with cars.As a transportation safety expert, Butler, 37, knows the risks they're taking. As a resident, Butler knows they have few other options. In some areas, crosswalks are 1,300 feet apart on a road that itself is about 75 feet wide. Last year about 120 people were killed walking Los Angeles' streets, making the city one of the most dangerous for pedestrians.

Trevor Noah is suing an orthopedic surgeon and the Hospital for Special Surgery, alleging negligence after he underwent an unspecified procedure in November 2020.

According to egal documents filed in November and obtained by E! News, the Daily Show host was a patient of shoulder, elbow and knee specialist Dr. Riley J. Williams III between August and December 2020, including for surgery, at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. In the complaint filed by Noah's attorneys, the late-night host accused both Williams and the hospital, along with their agents, servants and/or employees, of performing and rendering diagnosis, management, care, treatment and surgery in a "negligent and careless manner," constituting "professional negligence." The lawsuit also claims the defendants were negligent and careless in their alleged failure to treat and care for Noah in a "careful and skillful manner" and allegedly failed to use approved methods in his care, treatment and the surgery performed.

In the lawsuit, he also claims those involved failed to inform him of the "risks, hazards and alternatives to the treatment and medical care and assistance rendered so that an informed consent to said treatment could be given."

"A reasonably prudent person in the position of the plaintiff," the lawsuit states, "would have refused the treatment rendered, had they been so informed of the risks, hazards and alternatives to the treatment rendered."
