A pedestrian crossing an interstate highway is always cause for concern.  On Monday evening, this scenario ended a man's life as he attempted to cross I-70 at Sterling Avenue.  According to authorities Andrew L. Mullins, a 40-year-old homeless man with a last known address in Dallas, TX, attempted to cross, with a companion,  the eastbound lanes of I-70 when he was struck by a Ford pickup.  Mullins was pronounced dead at the scene and his companion fled the site of the accident. 

Police indicated that where the accident occurred, a shopping center sits adjacent to the highway, and there is no fence separating the two.  Although most of us are aware that pedestrians are restricted from being on interstate highways, having a fence blocking access from a shopping district would certainly have been a good deterent in this case. 

As Kansas City Auto Accident Lawyers, we know that pedestrian accidents along the highway are not that unusual.  In most cases, however, the people injured or killed are normally on the highway for a reason, such as an auto accident, car problems, etc. 

At Roswold Law Group we encourage all pedestrians to obey the law and stay off the interstate highways.
