Fatal Accident Investigation
Police are investigating this collision to determine the cause and liability. At this point, we do not know who had the right-of-way in the road, but typically vehicles are required to yield to pedestrians at all times. We do not know if the driver was distracted, speeding or obeying all traffic laws at the time of the collision. This is under investigation.
Our prayers go out to the woman who was hurt in hopes of a full recovery.
If a negligent driver or another entity is at fault for a collision resulting in injuries to you or a loved one, there may be grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
