Police Say Texting Played a Role in the Death of a Pedestrian

In West Allis, Wisconsin, police have reason to believe that a collision resulting in the death of a pedestrian may have been caused by a driver texting. The unfortunate pedestrian accident occurred on National Avenue and may have been prevented if the driver had not been sending text messages.

As a result of the accident, 53-year-old Linda Zyduck was killed. She had to rely upon the use of a walker to get from place to place and was hit while she was crossing a street near her apartment building on Friday evening.

According to local law enforcement officers, the driver was a 19-year-old woman who was operating a Toyota Camry. The driver told police that she did not see anyone in the road when she hit Zyduck. The medical examiner's report noted that "police suspect she may have been texting at the time of the accident."
