This morning on westbound 270 all lanes were shut down because of a fatal accident. This time it is because a pedestrian was hit and killed. Now this happened before 6 am and it's totally dark. What moves someone to try to cross an interstate on foot? I just don't get this and feel very sorry for the person driving the car which hit him/her.
Also, it should behoove people to know how dangerous it is to be on a busy roadway on foot or on a bike. Every Sunday when coming into Collinsville for church I drive down the Belt Line and each week I come around one of the curves and there is someone walking or slowing riding a bike along the practically non-existent shoulder. In this case I have some sympathy for those people because it's obvious they have no money for a car and have to get to and from work, probably a job on 157. But it's still so dangerous.
