North Carolina Pedestrian Accidents  Lexington, NC - Pedestrian Killed in Tractor-Trailer Crash on US 52

A North Carolina pedestrian accident can result in life-altering consequences. Unfortunately, many of these crashes also result in the death of the pedestrian. A pedestrian who is struck by a large vehicle such as a tractor-trailer stands very little chance of emerging unscathed from the crash.

Pedestrian crashes frequently occur at times when visibility is poor, such as nighttime or early-morning hours. Drivers at these times of day may not be paying attention or may have a difficult time seeing a pedestrian in the roadway. This can cause a disastrous crash to take place.
