About Me

My photo
Durham, NC, United States
As a photojournalist my principal interests are spot news, fires, etc. I also like to see the humor in everyday situations. In my 42 years as a photojournalist I have seen a lot of people die. First, during the Salvadoran Civil War, and since then, on some of the 'mean streets' of my adopted hometown......still, a great little town all the same!

Pedestrian Struck by car & killed Friday morning !!!

Authorities responded to a report of a pedestrian struck early Friday morning on MLK at Bay Point Dr. Eyewitnesses stated that the victim, a woman, was attempting to cross MLK when she was struck by a car driven by a driver who was traveling westbound. It was dark and raining heavily about 7am. when the accident happened and the driver said she did not see the pedestrian until it was too late. Firefighters and medics performed CPR on the victim, but she could not be resuscitated and was declared dead at the scene. The driver, in the background in this image, was treated for shock after collapsing at the scene. Police are investigating the accident to determine if charges are warranted.
