Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation
Distractions are a major cause in today's vehicular accidents. Technology advancements have aided in distracting drivers such as GPS devices, DVD systems in vehicles, and cellular phones. Americans are also busier than ever due to our fast paced society. In order to manage this lifestyle, people must master the art of multi-tasking. This also leads to driving distractions because drivers should have their full attention on operating their vehicle but are often driving and texting, driving and eating, and even driving while applying makeup.
Drivers who are distracted do not have their undivided attention on operating a vehicle, which often lead to accidents. A distracted driver often takes their eyes off of the road instead of watching for stopped vehicles ahead, traffic lights, changes in road, and pedestrians. Pedestrians who are struck by vehicles receive severe injuries and often death.
On Friday, a pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle on Tesson Ferry Road in Affton, Mo. The accident occurred near Lutheran High School South during a football game. The pedestrian was a 57-year-old man who was pronounced dead at the scene. The St. Louis County Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
