Bus hits, kills pedestrian

Most Indiana residents take basic actions like crossing the street on foot for granted. These things are in many ways simple and should be easily done. However, because cars can be on the roads at the same time, pedestrians have to be ever aware of the risks they face. Even if a pedestrian is crossing in the location and at the time they should, they can still be struck by vehicles because not all drivers are appropriately aware or safe.

Pedestrian safety laws in Indiana

Whether walking or running for exercise or simply on foot when going between cars and offices, shops or homes, pedestrians in Indiana must navigate and share the roads with cars, trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles. Every state has its own laws designed to provide appropriate safety for pedestrians while also keeping in mind traffic flow considerations. Knowing the laws in Indiana is important for pedestrians and motorists alike.

High school student killed by drunk driver

The thought of any person on foot being hit by a vehicle can be enough to make anyone in Indiana shudder. When the person hit is a child with their whole life still before them, the tragedy can feel even worse. Grieving parents and fellow students at schools are left wondering why such a thing could be allowed to happen. This would be a natural thing to feel and may well be what many in the case of an accident that happened in Homer City last year may have experienced.
