Man killed on I-75 was a pedestrian from Iowa, reports say

Imagine walking along the side of the road after your car breaks down; you know you're on a busy highway, but people will see you, right? You're out in the open and aren't standing in the way of the passing vehicles, yet you're the one who gets hit by a car. What do you do now? In your case, you may be entitled to compensation for the negligence of the driver who struck you.

Your case may be similar to this one if you lost a loved one in a car accident or have been struck by a car while exiting your vehicle on a highway or busy road. In this case from Nov. 30, a man from Iowa died after he was hit by a car in the early morning hours. He was on Interstate 75 in Pasco County, Florida, when he was struck.

The 38-year-old man had been walking on the southbound shoulder of the highway at around 3:10 a.m., the report claims. Police did not report what he was doing on the shoulder of the highway, but it was there that a 41-year-old man in the southbound lane struck him. The pedestrian passed away at the scene after being hit by the man's Ford F-150.

The police did not report if the 41-year-old man would be facing charges for the accident. In cases like this, things like blood alcohol content or a lack of sleep could mean the difference for who is found to be at fault. So far, no information has been provided about the men and who would be found liable in this situation.
