Pedestrian killed in Davenport, Iowa, at local intersection

If you walk to work or school or have family members who do so, then you may live with the fear that they could be hit by a car when they're traveling due to the driver's negligence or inattentiveness. Unfortunately, accidents happen, and that could put your family member at risk of permanent injury or death. One person was recently killed in Iowa after being struck by a vehicle coming through an intersection; police are still investigating to see why the accident happened and if the lights were working properly at the time.

Recently, a pedestrian was left with critical injuries after being hit on River Drive in Davenport, Iowa. The pedestrian, who passed away at the scene, had been crossing the road when they were hit by oncoming traffic. The news did not say if there was a crosswalk, but the pedestrian was at an intersection with lights. The accident, which took place at approximately 7:16 a.m., allegedly happened shortly after the traffic signal turned green for River Drive traffic.

The driver of the vehicle involved was an 82-year-old man from Rock Island, Illinois. He suffered some injuries, all of which were reportedly non-life threatening, and he's expected to be released following treatment. According to the authorities, an investigation into the accident is still taking place. The pedestrian has not yet been identified.

Being hit by a car and facing permanent injuries or losing a loved one to a car accident is a tragedy you don't have to go through alone. With the right legal help, you may be able to get the compensation you need to move forward with your life.
