A pedestrian accident can happen at any time, but after sunset, the chances increase. Even in areas where pedestrian traffic is common, some drivers still fail to notice pedestrians in or near they roadway after dark. After a recent pedestrian accident in Alaska, residents are hoping drivers will become more vigilant.
A man was found lying in the road, having been spotted by the town's safety patrol. They called the police department and described the man as being unconscious and seriously injured. Emergency personnel took the man to a nearby medical facility, but he had died by the time they had arrived.
