Elderly Man Killed in Oklahoma Pedestrian Accident

By Car Accident Help on January 21, 2011

A 79-year-old man was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver as he crossed the street at Portland Avenue in Oklahoma City around 5 p.m. on Thursday, January 13 according to KFOR. Police stated that the victim was walking east when a southbound pickup truck struck him and then proceeded to drive away. The man was pronounced dead at the scene of the fatal Oklahoma pedestrian accident. Investigators state that the truck in question is a dark colored GMC or Chevrolet, full-size, extended cab with a chrome bumper and sustained front-end damage in the collision.

Pedestrian accidents in Oklahoma, as well as across the nation, occur more often than people think. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2009, there were a total of 4,092 pedestrian fatalities in the United States, with 31 deaths occurring in Oklahoma. California had the highest number of pedestrian fatalities at 563, while Wyoming had the least amount, with two.

If you are in a situation where someone has sustained fatal injuries in an Oklahoma pedestrian accident, stay at the scene of the accident until police and medical help arrives. Never leave the scene of an injury-causing accident until you have been authorized to do so.

Usually, pedestrian accidents in Oklahoma can be prevented. All motorists have a responsibility to practice safe driving techniques to ensure not only their own safety, but the safety of others on the road as well.
