Pedestrian Dies Crossing Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa

Ambulance racing to hospital

The Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa is known for its high risks of traffic accidents, and sadly, at the end of June, a pedestrian lost his life while trying to cross the busy roadway. At about 6:30 am, a driver of an SUV hit a 65-year-old man at the intersection of W. Cypress Street. The Tampa Police Department was still investigating the cause of the fatal collision.

Pedestrian accidents can happen in many areas around Tampa, including on busy highways and quieter residential streets. Some pedestrians suffer serious injuries in parking lots or garages, or even on the sidewalk when they are not crossing the street.

If a driver hits you and causes you serious injuries, you might have important legal rights. Similarly, if your family tragically lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you might seek compensation for wrongful death. Always discuss your options with a Tampa pedestrian accident attorney as soon as possible.
