Mercury Ins. Co. v. Pearson, A119346

Pedestrian who was struck by an uninsured motorist while crossing an intersection with his fianc-e is not entitled to coverage under his fianc-e's auto insurance policy. Judgment in favor of auto insurer is affirmed where the policy unambiguously extends uninsured motorist coverage to pedestrians only if they are "named insureds" or their spouses or relatives living in the same household.
