Robert Fayette Fatally Struck by Car on West Bell Road at North 23rd Avenue
PHOENIX, AZ (February 3, 2020)—A pedestrian died Wednesday after being struck by a vehicle at West Bell Road and North 23rd Avenue.
According to Sgt. Tommy Thompson of the Phoenix Police Department, Robert L. Fayette began crossing the intersection around 7 a.m. while pushing a wheelchair.
However, as the 62-year-old continued walking, the signal reportedly changed, and a 2006 Mercury Grand Marquis heading westbound on West Bell Road struck him.
Fayette suffered grave injuries in the incident and was transported to a local hospital where doctors pronounced him dead.
Following the accident, the 77-year-old driver who did not appear to be intoxicated, say officers, stayed at the scene; however, an investigation concerning the cause and circumstances is underway.
