The Pueblo Chieftain has reported that a man who hit and killed a “woman walking on Interstate 25 early Saturday north of Pueblo likely won’t be cited.” The Colorado State Patrol spokesperson who was interviewed for the report didn’t elaborate on why the man won’t be charged. Both the woman who was hit and the driver were from Colorado Springs.
4,378 people were killed in pedestrian accidents involving automobiles in 2008. According to an article at Walking Info, this averages to around 12 fatalities everyday. Beyond this, there were around 69,000 pedestrian injuries in the same year.
