Pedestrian killed in Iowa collision
A 73-year-old pedestrian has passed away after she was hit by an oncoming motor vehicle in Clear Lake last Tuesday morning. The accident occurred around 9:30 a.m. near the intersection of Main Avenue and Fourth Street.
The woman was crossing the street when her body made contact with a southbound pick-up truck. An 87-year-old Clear Lake man was behind the wheel at the time of the accident. Several people were attempting to help the injured women, who sustained serious head trauma. She was transported by ambulance to a Clear Lake hospital as soon as paramedics arrived. She died one day later.
Police are planning on recreating the scene of the pedestrian accident in order to determine if a crime took place. As of now, the driver of the truck has not been charged in the incident.
