An accident happened in late October causing the death of a pedestrian. The South Carolina Highway Patrol stated that the pedestrian was killed after being struck on the side of the highway.
According to Live 5 News, this accident occurred on the morning of October 28th. A pedestrian was walking down the highway when a Chevy Tahoe hit the female. She was wearing dark clothing and was walking with the flow of the traffic.
The Highway Patrol's traffic website stated that Troopers were called to Sidneys Road at Chestnut Road around 6am. The accident was very close to the Pack A Sack Storage Company found in this area.
The driver in the SUV was not injured and was the person that called 9-1-1. Currently, the accident is still being investigated.
"It's always horrible to hear about an accident that causes a death," stated Gary Christmas of Howell and Christmas, LLC. "This is certainly a tragedy and there's no way to bring the pedestrian back to life."
Christmas also stated that the law does ensure that victims and their families are compensated in situations of this nature. Victims and families should always consult with an attorney after an accident. It's important to understand the legal options available.
