Walking down a roadway or highway can be a dangerous activity any time of day. However, when it is nighttime, it can be even more dangerous for pedestrians to walk alongside the road. For one Missouri man, walking along the road led to his death after he was involved in a car accident.
Anytime a vehicle is left alongside the roadway for any reason, there is the risk that it could get hit by another vehicle. There is also the potential that it could cause injuries if other vehicles come alone and hit a disabled car. Recently, a disabled car led to a chain reaction car accident on a Missouri highway and injuries occurred as a result.
It is rarely easy for family members to deal with losing a loved one unexpectedly, no matter the age of the person who passes away. Pedestrian accidents that prove to be fatal often leave behind such grieving family members. The family of a 74-year-old Missouri man who lost his life in this type of car accident will now be left behind to mourn his untimely death.
Dangerous road conditions in and around Columbia, Missouri, can contribute to motor vehicle accidents that cause serious injury and sometimes even death. An intersection or stretch of road is sometimes a factor, and when a negligent driver is added to the mix, the combination can be lethal.
