Fatal Accident Investigation
Police are investigating this collision in an effort to determine who is at fault. At this time, we do know know what led to the crash, nor liability. Typically, a pedestrian always has the right-of-way in the roadway and a driver must yield to them. However, if they put themselves in harm’s way there could be shared liability.
Our prayers go out to those affected by this crash.
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.
