There is a certain amount of danger present when pedestrians walk next to roadways that may sometimes lead to tragic car accidents. Whether the victim of a pedestrian hit and run or some other collision, a person struck by a vehicle typically suffers major injury. A recent one of these car accidents in Birmingham, Alabama involved two pedestrians.
A man and woman were walking next to a roadway in an Alabama neighborhood on a Thursday afternoon. Officials state that a utility van had been traveling eastbound along the street before it jumped the curb and hit the two pedestrians before crashing into a pole. In the course of the crash, the van pinned the woman beneath it. Authorities declared her dead after arriving at the scene.
