Motorists who travel around universities and other schools have to be extra vigilant about watching for pedestrians. Failing to do so can lead to an accident that pits a car against a pedestrian. Those types of accidents are often serious. In some cases, the pedestrian might die as a result of the accident. An Ohio car accident near Ohio State University is a stark reminder that drivers must watch for pedestrians, even when there isn't a crosswalk in the area.
The accident happened in an area of the University District that doesn't have traffic signals or crosswalk. A 24-year-old man tried to cross Summit Street shortly after midnight. He was in between two intersections for 18th Avenue when he was struck by a car heading southbound.
