A wreck involving a car and a pedestrian often results in catastrophic consequences. For drivers under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, it is unfortunately easy for the lack of attention or coordination to cause such a serious accident. A Minnesota man recently pleaded guilty to a fatal pedestrian accident and ended up receiving four years in prison.
According to an article that covered the trial, the accident occurred on December 19, 2015. The victim was walking on the sidewalk along a local road at around 4:15 p.m. A vehicle, driven by the defendant, left the road and hit the victim, who was later declared dead at the scene of the accident.
