Apparently, a 35-year-old male driver was exiting his driveway in his 1997 Chevrolet pickup truck.

Dealing With Fatal Pedestrian Accidents
Moreover, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, more individuals are staying at home, whether by preference or under a state-mandated lockdown. As people adjust to unprecedented routines, a classic concept has risen in modern popularity: walking.
Americans, as well as others around the world, have taken it upon themselves to walk outside daily. Taking walks is usually the only time in which people are spending outside.
Furthermore, the increase of foot traffic on local sidewalks, intersections, and roads seems harmless enough. However, this timeless habit can have devastating consequences.
In the same way, taking walks is becoming increasingly dangerous, unfortunately leading to a surge of pedestrian accidents annually.
