As readers are likely aware, it is always important for drivers that are traveling the roadways of Missouri to be on the lookout for other vehicles and pedestrians. A pedestrian is certainly no match for any type of vehicle, and when they are hit, they stand a good chance of being seriously injured. This is surely the case when they are struck by a commercial motor vehicle. Unfortunately, this occurred recently in Hannibal, Missouri, and one man was left fatally injured.
According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, the 45-year-old pedestrian was out walking in the evening around 9:30. While walking along Highway 36, he was struck by a semi truck. Some of the highway lanes were closed as a result of the accident. The driver of the truck was not injured.
