Florida man killed in auto-pedestrian accident

Crossing a street should not be a dangerous activity, but an unfortunate number of individuals are hurt and killed each year when reckless and negligent drivers fail to uphold their duties to act reasonably. Just recently a 46-year-old man lost his life while he was attempting to cross State Road 60 in Mulberry, Florida.

The man and a child were crossing the road on their way to a food truck in the evening when the accident occurred. A vehicle swerved to avoid hitting them, but when it took its evasive maneuver it ended up colliding with the victim. Fortunately the child was uninjured in the incident but the man ended up passing away while still at the scene of the accident.

It is unclear if the driver in this story will be charged with any criminal counts, but what is likely is that the victim's loved ones will have a difficult road to walk without him in their lives. In addition to bearing the heavy burden of a lost love one, they may also have to absorb the financial costs of providing him with a funeral and the expenses related to his burial.

Auto-pedestrian accidents happen quickly and are often devastating to pedestrian victims. Despite taking precautions and following the rules of the road, too many people are affected by irresponsible drivers who fail to yield to them when they are in roads and streets. Pedestrian accident deaths, like auto accident deaths, can sometimes form the bases of wrongful death claims. In order understand one's rights after an auto-pedestrian collision, individuals can work with personal injury attorneys in their communities.
