Pedestrian Struck and Killed on the Boulder Turnpike

ABC 7 News has reported that a 26-year-old man was killed on Highway 36 near the Northwest Parkway exit last night around 7 pm.

No one expects to be the victim of a pedestrian accident when they go for a walk. It is, however, important for pedestrians to be aware of the dangers of walking near roads and highways and to take the necessary precautions to insure their safety. Pedestrians should avoid walking on highways, wear reflective clothing if they are walking after dark, and always cross roads at designated crosswalks and intersections.

If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, you need to speak to a Parker injury attorney about your legal options. You may be entitled to insurance funds you are unaware of.
