Pedestrian killed in accident on 1st walk since motorcycle crash

It’s tough enough to have to deal with the aftermath of one motor vehicle accident in Corinth -- the time and costs involved, and most importantly recovering from any bodily injuries suffered. Getting hit twice in just a few months is almost too terrible to imagine.

A woman in another state has died after getting into two motor vehicle accidents in six months. She was killed in a pedestrian accident on Nov. 24 while walking on her own for the first time since the original incident.

She was an avid motorcyclist who was badly injured in a motorcycle crash in May. She had been unable to leave the house since, but on Nov. 24 felt well enough to walk to a convenience store across the street for coffee and a newspaper. It was one of her favorite activities, her husband said.

Unfortunately, as she was crossing the street in the crosswalk, the victim was struck by a 24-year-old woman driving through a red light. The victim died as a result. She and her husband would have celebrated their 41st anniversary on Nov. 25. She is also survived by two children.

The driver is facing criminal charges as a result of the accident, including reckless driving and failure to yield to a pedestrian. If, as it appears from initial reports, she caused this terrible tragedy through negligent driving, she also could be held responsible for the financial harm suffered by the victim and her family, as well as non-economic damages like pain and suffering.
