Pedestrian Struck and Killed by a Semi-truck at the intersection of Lincoln Ave. and 12th St. in Fennimore, Wisconsin

Thoughts on semi-truck and pedestrian accidents

What a tragic accident that, unfortunately, is not all too uncommon. Every year, thousands of pedestrians are struck and killed on the streets. In 2022, over 7,500 pedestrians died after being hit by a vehicle (The Governor’s Highway Safety Association). That’s a somber statistic. Pedestrian fatalities on our roadways are a pressing concern that we must address.

When it comes to this incident in Fennimore, a thorough investigation is needed to determine what caused the trucker to strike this pedestrian. Was it due to driver error, such as speed, distraction, or impairment? Or was the reason outside of the driver’s control?

If negligence is established, it’s essential for those responsible to be held accountable.

Pedestrians deserve to feel safe on our roads, and truck drivers must uphold their responsibility to prioritize pedestrian safety.
