Shortly after 9 p.m. Monday night, officials were called to 40th Place and Hickman Road, where the woman was struck by the van. She was taken to the hospital and later died from her injuries.
Officials are still investigating the accident, and say excessive speed and alcohol are not a factor. Officials are also looking into whether a street light that was out played a role in the accident.
We at The Beattie Law Firm never like to hear of such tragedies and our hearts go out to the victim’s family.
It is a tragic reminder that accidents can happen at any time. If you or a loved one have questions or concerns regarding an accident, please don’t hesitate to call us at 515-263-1000.
