West Virginia woman killed in pedestrian accident

For some residents in West Virginia, it is more convenient for them to travel by foot. Although it is better for them and the environment, pedestrians do encounter some risks while they travel near and on roads. Even in areas with sidewalks, marked crossing, reduced speeds and signs, an auto-pedestrian accident could still occur. Whether a driver is distracted or speeding, it is often challenging for a person to avoid a collision when a vehicle is headed straight for them. Moreover, an individual is often seriously injured or killed on impact, simply due to the size of the vehicle and the speed of the vehicle.
