Tucson Pedestrian Died From Injuries

Deceased Pedestrian Was Identified

Mr. Michael Gary Edminster, a 50 year old resident of Tucson, was struck near the intersection of North Campbell Avenue and East Prince Road. Mr. Edminster was crossing the street outside the pedestrian walkway when he was struck by an SUV. The Tucson pedestrian died from injuries caused by the auto accident.

Tucson Pedestrian Died From Injuries

The accident occurred before 9:00 p.m. when there was some reasonable visibility in the roadway. The driver of the 2001 BMW SUV was identified and he remained on the scene for questioning. A traffic citation was not issued. The driver of the vehicle described the pedestrian as running across the street from south to north when the accident took place.

Frequency of Tucson Pedestrian Fatal Accidents

There have been 7 pedestrian deaths as a result of car accidents this year. This is less than last year. However, it is still alarming that these accidents are occurring during the day where the driver is not impaired. It is unfortunate that some of our drivers and pedestrians have suffered the same fate. This kind of incident is not atypical in Arizona or in the rest of the country.  In fact, more than 4,700 pedestrians lost their lives last year. Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to die as compared to those who occupy a vehicle.

Tucson Pedestrian Injury Attorneys Advocating for You

A pedestrian accident will most likely leave a person with permanent injuries, or it can lead to the person's death. Remember that a pedestrian has the right of way whether the crosswalk is marked or not, just as long as the pedestrian is crossing properly. At Lara Law Firm, we handle pedestrian cases that became wrongful death claims. The responsible party (even the government) must be held accountable for the negligent acts that take the lives of our citizens. Please contact our office if you have any questions about your case.
