Pedestrian accident claims life of North Carolina woman

A fatal accident involving a Raleigh woman was recently reported in the area. The incident serves as an important reminder for Cary, North Carolina, drivers to be on the lookout for pedestrians.

Police identified the victim as a 43-year-old woman who was trying to cross what neighbors described as a busy street in the area during the nighttime. One witness saw the woman get struck by another vehicle and called 911. But, by the time authorities arrived, there was nothing they could do for the woman. The driver of the car who hit the woman was not hurt, and police apparently did not file criminal charges against the driver.

Neighbors indicated the victim lived in a nearby apartment and likely trying to cross the street to get to the local grocery store when she was hit. Many neighbors thought that a fatal accident was just a matter of time given that pedestrians were having sharing the road with frequent vehicle traffic, including drivers who sped through the area after dark. It should be noted, however, that fault has not been established in this accident, as the woman was not in a crosswalk when she got hit.

Still, drivers of North Carolina have an obligation to be on the lookout for pedestrians in the roadway, and this case merely serves as the latest tragic reminder of that obligation. While every case is different and the law is often fact sensitive, North Carolina residents who have been involved in a pedestrian accident may want to consider pursuing compensation for their injuries.
