Pedestrians are at the most risk for harm when walking the streets. They do not have the luxury of being protected by metal or being able to move quickly. The pedestrian accident lawyers at Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers want to talk about a recent case here in Cleveland, Ohio, that ended a pedestrian’s life.
In September 2020, Aaron Stallworth was sentenced to five years in prison for a 2019 hit-and-run. He ran a red light and stuck Richard Dubaniewicz in July 2019. Stallworth was driving down West 25th at over 70 mph, according to police, when it struck a pedestrian at an intersection. Stallworth ran a red light. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The Chevy kept its speed and eventually struck another vehicle on Wade Avenue.
Stallworth already had a previous charge for being a felon in possession of a gun. And tragically, Dubaniewicz lost his life simply crossing the street.
