Pedestrian Killed in a Semi-Truck Accident Close to Intersection of Ecorse and Monroe in Taylor, Michigan

Taylor, Michigan — A woman died on Tuesday after being struck by a semi-truck. The incident took place at the intersection of Ecorse and Monroe.

According to a witness, the victim was in their older years and was crossing the intersection on a three-wheel bike. Authorities have not confirmed this and have not provided more information.

Thoughts on Accidents with Large Trucks and Pedestrians

Every year, semi-trucks kill hundreds of pedestrians and nonoccupants (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), and the numbers keep rising. We cannot allow this to keep happening. When a pedestrian dies due to a semi-truck hitting them, trained professionals need to determine the actions of the driver before, during, and after the accident.

Investigations reveal answers to whether a trucker was distracted, speeding, or impaired. It will also answer whether the trucker had time to prevent the accident.

I hope questions will be answered in this incident, and if any wrongdoing is found, the deceased’s family will receive rightful justice.
