Charlotte Pedestrian Accident Kills Teenager

Our Charlotte, North Carolina car accident lawyers are often called upon by the families of pedestrians injured when hit by a car. On Tuesday, May 11, 2010, 17 year old Rayshawn Rainey was killed from injuries suffered in a Charlotte pedestrian accident.

According to witnesses, the teenager was trying to cross The Plaza. After clearing the two inbound lanes, he was struck when crossing the first outbound lane. The minor was struck by a second vehicle when he fell into the next lane.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Police continue to investigate, and neither drive has been charged.

Pedestrian Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly 12% of traffic deaths in 2008 were pedestrian, with approximately 75% of pedestrian deaths occurring at nonintersections (i.e., crossing in the middle of the street).

NHTSA has also found that although overall traffic related deaths have decreased, pedestrian traffic deaths have not seen the same decline.
