Norris, TN (October 9, 2020) The Tennessee Highway Patrol on October 9th identified the victim of a car crash who was killed on Norris Freeway. The accident occurred around 7 a.m. when a vehicle struck a pedestrian while he was in the process of crossing Norris Freeway. While emergency workers promptly arrived, the pedestrian passed away at the scene of the accident. The Tennessee Highway Patrol reports that charges have not been filed against the driver. The scene of the accident was temporarily blocked. Motorists who were traveling through the area were exercised to use caution. Additional details about the accident including what led to the collision are still uncertain.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that in 2017, 5,977 pedestrians were killed in traffic collisions. This equates to one death every 88 minutes. Pedestrian accidents occur for countless reasons including failure by motorists to yield right of way, pedestrians who cross the road in non designated areas, poor visibility of drivers, and drivers who operate vehicles while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
