It is an unfortunate fact that pedestrian accidents rarely leave the pedestrian unharmed. Such was the case for a local man, L.H., who was killed recently in a traffic accident. The 59-year-old man was crossing a road in the early in the morning when he was hit by a white van. Witnesses said he was lying in the street after the initial hit when a silver SUV immediately following the van then ran him over. He was dead at the scene and covered with a sheet as police investigated the cause of the deadly accident. The driver of the SUV said he didn't see him lying in the roadway in the dim early morning light. Have you lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident?
