Pedestrian Accidents Can Kill: Tragic Death in Indianapolis


It’s Christmas week, and we’ll never know what plans were in the thoughts of Miriam Macdonald, 80, this morning, as she strolled along the northbound side of Georgetown Road at around 8:30 am. Mrs. Macdonald was walking along, near the intersection of Georgetown Road and 71st Street, when she was hit by a vehicle driven by Fred Johnson, 71, another Indianapolis resident. Mrs. Macdonald was no match for the Sports Utility Vehicle; she passed away today at St. Vincent Hospital.

With today’s news, please take heed: people do die while walking along Indianapolis streets — something that we never think would happen. Particularly where snow is a factor, pedestrians need to be aware of how vulnerable they are just walking along the street.

Pedestrian accidents do happen. Be careful out there, Indianapolis!
