Pedestrian Killed in Greene County, North Carolina


September 18, 2019

GREENE COUNTY, N.C. — A pedestrian walking on a road in Greene County died after he was hit by a car. The pedestrian was 59-years-old and lived in the area of the accident. WITN reported that the crash occurred around 1:15 on a Thursday morning. The operator of the car in the pedestrian crash, a 35-year-old woman, also resides in the area of the fatal pedestrian collision. North Carolina State Troopers launched an investigation into the incident. At this time, the investigating troopers say that the female motorist will not face any criminal charges. There was no information regarding whether the troopers would press on with a further investigation. *

The 59-year-old man who succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash frequently walked on Fort Run Road to and from a friend’s home. Troopers suspect that is what he was doing when the female operator of a motor vehicle struck him. She too lives in the area of Fort Run Road. However, WITN did not provide a detailed location of her residence.

The preliminary investigation into the fatal pedestrian crash initiated by the responding North Carolina State Troopers revealed that the pedestrian was walking on Fort Run Road when the car struck him. The responding troopers reported that the road was dark in the area of the collision. 

Curiously, the investigating troopers noted that the accident was not avoidable due to the lighting conditions and the speed at which the motorist drove. A photograph of Fort Run Road provided by WITN depicts the area of the crash to be in a rural area. The article did not note a speed limit for Fort Run Road where the accident happened or how fast the car was moving when the vehicle struck the pedestrian. Additionally, the article did not say where on the road the car struck the pedestrian. Notwithstanding, the reporting trooper told the news outlet that the driver could not do anything to avoid a collision.
