Iowa pedestrian accident kills one
A Des Moines, Iowa pedestrian accident that took place on New Year’s Day has resulted in one death.
The pedestrian, an 80-year-old man, passed away eight days after he was struck by a motor vehicle. He was walking near the intersection of Ingersoll Avenue and 35th Street when a car collided with him. The car was driven by an 18-year-old female from Des Moines, who claims that the sun was too strong to see the man.
At the time of the accident, the man was still conscious and was able to talk to police. He had forgotten the previous events and was taken to a hospital to be treated. The injuries he suffered from led to his death eight days later.
The victim’s family and friends are in our thoughts during this tragic time.
