16-year-old Andrew Tolman of Farmington, Utah was hit while walking at a crosswalk on Tuesday, March 27, 2012. According to KSL News, Tolman was hit by a 29-year-old woman in a SUV near 400 West and State Street while walking his bike at a crosswalk. The teenager was transported by helicopter to the University Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. At this point, no citations have been issued to the driver. The case will be turned over to the Davis County Attorney’s Office after proper investigation. The woman was not reported to be distracted or impaired, though the glare from the sun may have been a factor.
I offer my heartfelt condolences to Andrews’s family.
This is such a terrible pedestrian accident. It is always hard to hear about an accident like this. As a Utah wrongful death attorney I would recommend that this family contact an attorney to find out what remedies may be available.
