According to WSET, I-81 in Radford, VA was the scene of a horrific accident on January 2, 2013. It appears that a pedestrian was struck by more than one car and killed around 6:45 a.m. Two lanes of traffic and one entrance ramp were closed as emergency crews cleared the scene and tried to piece together what happened.
The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:
Pedestrians are very vulnerable when walking near cars, especially if the cars are traveling at high speeds. It was not reported why this individual was not in a car or truck when the accident occurred or how he was struck by more than one vehicle in the crash. What is clear is that his family members have suffered a horrible loss, and they may be entitled to compensation to assist with the financial issues that accompany a wrongful death such as this one.
