Cody Hadley, 25 years old from West Haven, Utah, is now dead following a fatal Utah pedestrian accident, on May 28, 2010, reports the Salt Lake Tribune. According to the story, the man was hit by a Dodge Dakota pickup truck around 1:30 a.m. Friday morning as he walked along the side of the road in West Haven, Utah. Hadley was said to be wearing dark clothes at the time and is said to have been walking partially in the southbound lane of 3500 West at the time of this Utah pedestrian accident. Police say that there were no streetlights in the vicinity and that the driver just didn’t see him in time. No citations were issued to the motorist.
I first want to send my sincere condolences and prayers to the family of Cody Hadley.
Next, as a Utah accident lawyer, there remain, for me, questions that need to be answered. Some of these questions include: Was Cody Hadley really walking in the road? Was he walking with or against traffic? What does the investigation show regarding footprints that might have been visible in the dirt or road? Why was Cody out this early in the morning? And why was the motorist out this early in the morning? Was this motorist distracted by something in his or her car? How much light was there to illuminate this pedestrian? Were the street lights malfunctioning? And was alcohol or other controlled substances involved?
