Louisville, Kentucky Man Struck & Killed On Gene Snyder While Changing Flat Tire

May 5, 2011

On Tuesday, a 38 year old man was killed while attempting to change a flat tire along the Gene Snyder Freeway. The accident happened around 10:30 p.m. when a SUV that was merging onto the Gene Snyder from the southbound ramp from Preston Highway. The reports indicate that the driver of the SUV was merging onto the freeway and apparently didn't see the man, who was outside of his vehicle in the emergency lane. This appears to be a case of driver inattentiveness and negligence on the part of the SUV driver. The family of the man struck and killed in this car accident will have a wrongful death claim against the driver of the SUV.
