6 Year Old Girl Killed Crossing Street

“A 6-year-old girl was fatally struck by a car Saturday night — and a 16-year old family friend suffered a broken arm — as the pair crossed a South Side street on their way to a Halloween party.

Diamond Robinson died at a local hospital after the accident at 70th and Loomis,” reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

According to the girl’s aunt, Diamond tried to cross the street and the 16-year-old girl with her grabbed her arm and attempted to yank her back. Unfortunately, both girls were hit – one fatally.

According to an individual who lives about 100 yards from the crash site, speed is a problem on the street where the accident occurred. The neighbor indicated that something should be done to prevent cars from traveling through the area at 50 and sometimes 60 mph – a speed bump, stop sign or other speed deterrent. The spot is only a few feet from the elementary school.

The driver of the vehicle was cited for driving too fast for conditions, driving without insurance and failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. The man did stop immediately and held the young girl until the authorities arrived.


Chicago Pedestrian Accidents

Chicago car accident attorneys know that pedestrian accidents often happen due to driving too fast, sometimes in conjunction with other factors. To avoid car accidents and injuring pedestrians, Chicago car accident lawyers recommend the following safe driving practices:

• Don’t drive drunk
• Don’t speed
• Don’t drive while drowsy
• Don’t text or talk on the phone
• Pay attention to the road
• Adjust your driving to the traffic and road conditions

This is especially important in the fall and winter months, as the amount of daylight is decreasing and impairing visibility for drivers. Our Chicago car accident attorneys urge drivers to use caution – particularly this evening, due to the holiday – and to keep an eye out for pedestrians who may not be paying attention.
