A Good Samaritan from Bloomington, Illinois was killed Saturday when he stopped to assist with a car accident. The accident occurred in Washington, Illinois when the 55-year-old man had witnessed an automobile accident in an intersection. He decided to check on the two victims of the crash and was struck and killed by a 64-year-old man.

Distractions during driving are one of the most frequent causes for accidents, especially accidents involving pedestrians. With the advances in technology comes an entire category of distractions including cell phones, DVD players in vehicles, and GPS systems. Most drivers are guilty of being distracted occasionally by at least one of these items, not to mention the other distractions such as eating while driving, applying makeup, and talking with passengers in the vehicle. Pedestrian accidents typically result in severe injuries that alter the victims' life.
