Jacksonville – Elderly man hit and killed on Monument
JSO reported in February that an 80-year old man died of his injuries as a result of being struck by a vehicle while crossing busy Monument Road in Arlington. The crash tied up traffic for hours as police investigated the scene but details on how the accident occurred have not yet been released.
For most of us, a simple walk down a sidewalk and crossing the street is done without a whole lot of thought or, more oftentimes, while engaged in a squinting battle with your cellphone screen. Regardless of how you perambulate, this activity isn’t deemed as particularly dangerous, more ubiquitous – a simple, yet effective means to an end. But not even two months into 2019 and 16 traffics death shave occurred in Jacksonville according to the JSO. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, 1,016 crashes involving pedestrians have already occurred this year statewide and 74 of these crashes resulted in the pedestrian’s death. The heartache the family left behind feels after a senseless tragedy never really goes away. On top of this, medical bills, lost wages, and other costs can quickly skyrocket out of control. A grieving family should never have this stress placed upon them in their darkest hour.
