Multiple Vehicles Strike and Kill Pedestrian in Aurora, Colorado

December 10, 2019

AURORA, CO- writes that at least two and possibly more vehicles struck a pedestrian earlier this week, killing the unidentified individual. The incident occurred in the early evening when a person walking on East Smith Road got hit by one car, and then at least one more. The drivers operating both vehicles remained at the scene of the accident.*

Reports indicate that another vehicle is believed to have been involved, but that the driver of that vehicle left the scene. Responders rushed the individual to the hospital where the person died. Police are seeking witnesses to the accident. 

Reports often indicate that pedestrian accidents occurred because drivers were unable to see the people in the roadway. Certainly, pedestrian crashes are more common at night, likely because of the visibility issue. However, the excuse does little to help rectify the rising number of deadly vehicle versus collisions across the United States. 

While getting drivers to and pedestrians to exercise more caution could help, it is unlikely that people are going to change their behaviors drastically. Luckily, automobile manufacturers may be able to cut down on the number of pedestrian deaths by manufacturing better pedestrian detection systems. These systems use radar and cameras that catch pedestrian movement and can alert a driver who may not see the person. 

Current systems exist, but they do not come standard in all vehicles. Safety experts hope that the systems will continue to improve and, eventually, will be standard on all vehicles. Of course, it will be many years before the majority of vehicles on the road come with this technology.
