Jordan Earley Died In LaGrange Crash Along Manchester Road (State Route 55)

Jordan Earley Killed Lagrange on Manchester Road (State Route 55)

DUTCHESS COUNTY, NEW YORK (January 7, 2022)  – A pedestrian identified as Jordan Earley has tragically died in a car accident along Manchester Road, otherwise known as State Route 55.

Dutchess County police officials are saying that the collision took place around 9:25 p.m. on New Year’s Eve. Jordan Earley was walking along the westbound lanes when he was struck by a Kia Soul.

Paramedics were called to the scene of the collision in order to help the victim. Jordan Earley was taken to the MidHudson Regional Hospital where he later died due to his injuries.

Liability In LaGrange Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are uniquely vulnerable in car accidents due to their lack of protection. According to one report from the National Safety Council, “in 2019 most pedestrian traffic deaths occurred in urban settings (82%), on the open road (73%) versus intersections (26%), and during dark lighting conditions (80%).” Victims of pedestrian accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Organ damage

A large number of pedestrian accidents are due to drivers that are traveling too fast for the prevailing conditions. Driving the speed limit could be dangerous at night or during periods of inclement weather. When a driver fails to exercise due care and hits a pedestrian they could be held at fault through a negligence claim. There are many pieces of evidence that are important to establishing fault after a collision.

  • Medical records
  • Surveillance footage
  • Eye witness testimony
  • Vehicle damage

The family of any victim that died in a car accident may be able to seek justice through a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death claims are designed to help mitigate the financial impact of any collision. A pedestrian accident attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are. There are, however, statute of limitations associated with civil claims.
