On Monday, February 16, 2015 we reported a person was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street at the intersection of Charleston Road and Independence Avenue. This same individual was transported to a local hospital, but unfortunately succumbed to their injuries on Wednesday, February 18. 2015.
It appears that the driver of the vehicle was exiting southbound from the shopping center parking lot and turned east onto Charleston Road at which point the person, who was crossing Charleston Road at Independence Avenue in the crosswalk, was struck. The driver of the vehicle involved remained at the scene and was cooperative (alcohol or drugs is not believed to have been a factor).
