The man was pronounced dead at the scene and the crash is under investigation.
There has been a large increase in pedestrian-related accidents in 2021. Distracted drivers, impaired drivers, poor driving and visibility conditions, and roads unable to handle the heavy flow of traffic are all factors in these crashes, and quite often they can be traced back to someone’s negligence or poor decisions.
