Pedestrian Struck and Killed on Sidewalk in Philadelphia

Posted on Dec 22, 2011

December 22, 2011 – Philadelphia, Pa. – According to CBS Philly News, a man, in his 50’s, walking to visit his family on Sunday, December 18, was struck and killed by an automobile.

Reports indicate that the victim was walking along East Prince Street sidewalk around 6 p.m., when a mini-van ran him over causing his death.

Eye-witnesses told police that 2 suspects fled the scene. Local police have taken a man into custody in connection with this hit-and-run but no charges have been formally filed at this point. It is unknown whether or not drugs and/or alcohol were a factor in the accident.

The combination of negligent drivers and pedestrians can be a deadly one. A personal injury lawyer could help you file a car accident or wrongful death claim against a driver who caused injuries or damages to you or someone you love to cover the costs of financial, physical, and/or emotional pain.
