Police Car Strikes Pedestrian on Stallings Road in Cabarrus County, North Carolina (NC)

August 04, 2020

CABARRUS COUNTY, NC- writes that a police officer struck a jogger on Stallings Road in Cabarrus County. The incident occurred in the early morning close to the intersection with Harrisburg Veterans Parkway. The officer is a deputy with the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office.*

Reports indicate that the deputy was traveling northbound and was about to turn left when the crash took place. The officer stated that the traffic light was blinking yellow and that he or she did not see the victim on the road. 

The young man and several other joggers were in a group at the time. The victim was a nineteen-year-old man who was stuck beneath the car. Responders were able to extract the man from beneath the car. The victim’s injuries are severe, but he is anticipated to recover. 

The authorities have not yet released information regarding the identities of the victim or the police officer. 

In North Carolina, the number of pedestrians killed in collisions continues to increase each year. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), pedestrian crashes are more likely when drivers or pedestrians are under the influence of alcohol. Other issues that lead to higher pedestrian risks include vehicles traveling at higher speeds, which increase the chances of a crash occurring as well as the severity of a resulting incident, and low visibility. Deadly pedestrian crashes happen more often at night, in cities, in locations outside of intersections. 

Pedestrians can increase their safety by wearing reflective gear, carrying a flashlight, and only crossing in crosswalks. When it is possible to do so, pedestrians should use sidewalks rather than walking in the street.
