Manchester – Local Official Killed In Pedestrian Incident

A pedestrian was killed in an accident in Manchester yesterday evening.

At around 6:30 p.m., authorities received reports of an accident on Hartford Road. 75-year-old John Deeb, a local official, was found by officers lying on the ground and unresponsive. First aid was provided by police until EMS crews arrived. The victim was transported to Hartford Hospital where he was eventually pronounced dead. The motorist who hit Deeb stayed at the crash site and has cooperated with the subsequent investigation. This post will be updated as soon as authorities release more info.

Identifying the causes of pedestrian accidents can be challenging but necessary simply because almost all of these cases result in serious or critical injuries to people. Accountability must be promptly established so that responsible parties are taken off the road. These things said, people injured in these situations (or their next of kin) may have options at their disposal if investigators discover DUI, reckless behavior or negligence. This may involve seeking damages as a way of coping and eventually finding closure.
