Tragic Car Crash Kills One on Magwood Drive in Charleston, South Carolina (SC)

November 06, 2020

CHARLESTON, SC- writes that a man died in a pedestrian collision on Magwood drive this week. The victim was reportedly a 39-year-old man who passed away a short while after the crash.*

Responders rushed the victim to the Medical University of South Carolina, but the injuries proved fatal. The incident occurred in the late evening, and the Charleston Police Department is still carrying out the investigation.

Pedestrian crashes are killing hundreds of individuals across South Carolina. According to statistics, the Palmetto State has some of the deadliest roads in the nation when it comes to pedestrian collisions. Nationally, pedestrian crashes are continuing to kill large numbers of individuals each year. More than 6,000 people lose their lives in pedestrian crashes annually, according to statistics. These fatalities are tragic in part because many of them could be prevented if people were to use extra caution. 

Poor lighting is a common issue making the roads more dangerous for people traveling on foot, and yet people often cross outside of crosswalks and intersections. Of course, in order for pedestrians to stay safe on the road, the infrastructure must be in place to provide them with safe options for crossing the street or walking. With the number of pedestrian incidents increasing each year, officials suspect they might have the ability and momentum to make some infrastructure improvements throughout the state. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drivers should always be on the outlook for pedestrians on the road. In hard to see areas or road conditions, such as in bad weather or when it is dark out, drivers should be extra vigilant about looking out for vulnerable road users. Preventing crashes also necessitates that drivers slow down and follow the speed limit. If speed limits are lower because of school zones or work zones, slow down even more in order to prevent tragedies.
