Pedestrian accident kills 1 in Clear Lake
On a Tuesday morning in April, an elderly woman was crossing the street in downtown Clear Lake when she was fatally hit by a truck.
The woman was struck in a crosswalk near Fourth Street and Main Street. The pedestrian accident left the 73-year-old woman with critical head injuries. When emergency responders arrived on the scene, they found the woman surrounded by bystanders who were attempting to help.
She was transported to a local hospital to have her head trauma addressed. She passed away due to complications from her injuries. The 87-year-old Clear Lake man who was operating the truck was not injured in the collision. At this time, no charges have been filed against him.
Our condolences are with the woman’s family and friends during this tragic time.
