Sadly, another life was taken Thursday after a pedestrian was struck and killed in St. Louis, Missouri. Furthermore, the accident is even more tragic because not only is the victim believed to be a teenager, but also the person who struck the victim fled the scene. The accident happened at Chambers and Green Valley, which is located in North County. The driver of a maroon car was speeding and hit the man as he was crossing the street.
This particular stretch of road where the latest pedestrian has been struck is no stranger to other fatal accidents. Another fatal hit and run accident took place in 2013 similar to this one. Likewise, the intersection is very poorly lighted, so it is hard to see people crossing the road, especially at night. The accident is currently being investigated.
No one should lose his or her life while trying to cross the street, and those guilty in hit and run accidents should be held accountable.
