Thoughts on Pedestrian Deaths on The Roadways

Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable on our roadways. In 2022, 7,508 pedestrians were struck and killed by a driver, the highest number of pedestrian fatalities in forty years (Governors Highway Safety Association). To help reduce pedestrian deaths, truck drivers need to travel at safe speeds and use caution when driving in hard-to-see conditions.

According to the CDL manual, commercial vehicle drivers need to look 12-15 seconds ahead of the distance down the road to help prevent accidents like this one. Did the truck driver in this accident follow the safety guidelines? Did any wrongdoing, such as speed or distraction, play a role in this incident? Trained professionals will need to conduct an investigation to determine whether the truck driver could have avoided striking the pedestrian.

The family of the deceased deserves answers. They have a right to know all the factors involved in the death of their loved one, and if this accident could have been avoided, they deserve justice for their pain and suffering.
