86-year-old pedestrian killed by semi-truck
Pedestrians aren’t the safest of creatures. That may be true, but in this case a semi-truck was the culprit. The driver made a left turn on a busy roadway, causing an accident that killed one pedestrian and injured another. A pedestrian was ejected from the truck and suffered serious injuries to the lower extremities. The incident was also a cause for post-traumatic headaches and depression for the victim and family.
The incident happened along South Meadow Street near Wood Street. The video that has been posted to the Citizen app shows a large food-distribution truck in the middle of the street. The video also indicates that the pedestrian was crossing the street at the time of the incident, though it’s unclear whether he was in a crosswalk or not.
