A pedestrian was fatally struck by a Baltimore City garbage truck on Tuesday afternoon. Around 2:45 pm, the 46-year-old man was crossing in an intersection when the garbage truck hit him. Although he was taken to the hospital for treatment, he succumbed to his fatal injuries shortly after arriving.
Pedestrians are protected by traffic laws, but drivers may be unaware of the specific guidelines or may disregard them. In a large city like Baltimore, pedestrians travel on foot on a regular basis, and may incur personal injuries or even fatalities when doing so. Pedestrian accidents, whether minor or catastrophic, occur more frequently than people think.
