Man Pushing Bike Across Road in Anderson County, South Carolina Killed in Crash

December 13, 2019

ANDERSON COUNTY, SC- writes that a man died when crossing the road with his bike in Anderson County. The victim was walking his bike and attempting to cross Highway 28 early in the morning this week.*

Police say that a Chevrolet Tahoe struck the victim, who was identified as a 58-year-old man. Police initially believed that a second vehicle struck the victim as well, and then fled the scene. Officers later determined that only one vehicle was involved and that the crash was not a hit-and-run. 

South Carolina is one of the many places in the country where pedestrian deaths are increasing rather than decreasing every year. Pedestrian safety has become a major concern in many places, as the rate of deaths continues to rise. SUVs and large vehicles are likely part of the reason for the increase in pedestrian deaths, but undoubtedly, infrastructure is making the situation worse as well. 

When a pedestrian is killed on the road, many people often point to the fact he or she crossed the roadway in an unsafe place, leading to their own demise. The reality of the situation is, though, that many places are not conducive to pedestrians at all. It can be difficult for a pedestrian to walk from one place to another when roads do not permit safe interconnected walking paths.

Safety advocates are pushing for significant changes to road design that could help prevent people from ending up in dangerous places, sharing the road with large vehicles. One project includes a bike and pedestrian bridge that is planned for U.S. Highway 17. Infrastructure changes are expensive, though, and can take a long time to complete.
