A 72-year-old pedestrian was struck and killed in a motor vehicle accident in Cudahy last Thursday.
Police were then notified about the accident by the man who was driving the vehicle. The accident occurred at 9:25 p.m. at the intersection of Packard and Squire Avenues.
The victim was rushed to the hospital to be treated for severe head injuries sustained in the accident, but the injuries proved to be fatal later that day. The Wisconsin State Patrol reconstructed the accident, but the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
Motor vehicle accidents can happen really quickly and change the lives of many people, our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim.
