Today, just about 90 min. ago, a 14 yr.old male was struck by a car and killed. This occurred about 3/4 of a mile from where we live. I know the area in question very well. The area is a four way intersection, ringed by small businesses. Truckers that make deliveries, usually have to park in the middle of the road, as the business's parking lots and driveways are too small for them to utilize. That's what occurred today. The tractor / trailer was parked in the middle of the road, and the 14 yr. old male darted out from behind the trailer and into the street and into on-coming traffic. He died at the scene. When we drove by, the street was taped off to any traffic, and numerous LE cars were present. We had no idea at the time what had taken place. Approx. 20 min. later, the local radio stationed reported on the accident. My wife was pretty shook up. Some family is going to suffer horribly today. The area that it happened at, is busy with foot traffic all the time. Not all pedestrians respect the traffic lights and often cross against them. Way too many cross at mid street, as this young man did.
