The pedestrian was severely harmed in the crash. Emergency medical services responded to the scene to care for the victim. However, they were pronounced deceased from their injuries.

Our condolences go out to the family of the pedestrian who died in this crash.
Fatal pedestrian accidents take the lives of thousands of people across the United States each year. Unfortunately, we witness accidents taking place here in Missouri every year. In many cases, pedestrians lose their lives as a result of accidents involving semi-trucks and large commercial vehicles. These vehicles have the potential to cause severe harm to anything they come in contact with. Given the fact that pedestrians have no protection during accidents, they are incredibly vulnerable.
