Tampa Woman Killed Crossing Street

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on April 16, 2015

On April 7, a woman died in Tampa after a car hit her while she was crossing the street. She and her friend ran across Hillsborough Avenue, but only made it to the outside lane of westbound traffic before she was struck.

“It simply appears that when they were crossing, they either did not see the vehicles or misjudged the speed,” Lt. Rick Ubinas told the Tampa Bay Times.

There was no crosswalk in the area of the road where the women crossed, and the death will be remembered as a tragic accident. While it is always smart to cross the street in a crosswalk or at a streetlight, it is not always possible. Accidents like this one happen more often than they should, and often victims have no other options.
