Two Pedestrian Accidents In Kentucky

Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC || 14-Nov-2016

One man is dead, and another is in critical condition after two pedestrian accidents in Louisville. Last Friday, a pedestrian was hit by an SUV while crossing Broadway. According to Louisville Metro Police, the man was crossing Broadway between First and Second streets around 6:30 a.m. with a friend when a driver struck him. Authorities say the driver of the SUV drove to another location and then called for help. Police say the man was hit at a non-crosswalk location and was caught on top of the car for about a block before he fell to the ground. The man was taken to the hospital where he died days later from his injuries. The accident is still under investigation, and it is unclear if the driver of the SUV was speeding.

Days later, a man was seriously injured in a pedestrian accident in the 2200 block of Dixie Highway. Police are looking for the hit-and-run driver that left the pedestrian for dead. According to Louisville Metro Police, the 25-year-old man was said to be riding his bike home from an election watch party on Oak Street. Early in the morning around 5:30 a.m., the unresponsive man was found near Hill Street Missionary Baptist Church. No one saw the accident and the pedestrian was not in possession of a bike. His family is searching for answers. The man is recovering in the hospital, and family members say he has severe swelling due to a fractured skull. Police are asking anyone with information about the accident to please call the department.
