A teenager was killed in a pedestrian accident on I-70 on July 15.
A witness told officials that the teenager was attempting to cross the interstate with a friend after leaving Circle K when the 18-year-old was struck by multiple vehicles.
The friend wasn’t hurt, but the teen was pronounced dead at the scene. Only one of the vehicles stopped to talk to police, the 23-year-old driver was not ticketed after the incident. The accident caused the eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 to be shut down while police investigated.
Pedestrian accidents can cause serious injury to anyone involved, our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim.
