Car Strikes and Kills Tragically Pedestrian in Marvin, North Carolina

December 29, 2019

MARVIN, NC- writes that a car struck and killed a man in Marvin earlier this week. The incident occurred on Joe Kerr Road in the early morning. Police believe that the victim was trying to cross the roadway when the vehicle collided with him. Reports indicate that the female driver was on her way back from work at the time. Officers stated that the man died at the scene of the accident.*

Traffic-related fatalities rose in North Carolina in 2018. Throughout the United States, car crash deaths dropped overall, but North Carolina did not experience the same decline. Pedestrians were hit harder than other road users in the state, as well as nationally. The number of people killed in North Carolina pedestrian crashes rose by more than thirteen percent between 2017 and 2018. 

Reports indicate that since a low of 148 deaths in 2009, the average number of pedestrians killed each year increased by 54 percent. The number of deaths far outpaces the population growth in the state, indicating that the death toll can not be written off as a result of busier, more crowded roadways.
