A pedestrian accident occurred in Harleyville, South Carolina, which resulted in a fatality. The fatal accident took place on Wednesday night, around 9:25 pm, along Interstate 26. The victim, who was walking on the road, was struck by a vehicle and succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene of the pedestrian accident.
Although pedestrians are free to walk along local roads and state highways, they may be at-risk for incurring a range of personal injuries as well as potential fatalities while doing so. Earlier this week, another fatal pedestrian accident occurred on the same road, which may point to a notoriously dangerous area for pedestrians and motorists. Poor lighting, a lack of designated crosswalks, faulty traffic signals, and other factors may contribute to the number of pedestrian and motor vehicle accidents at that location.
