Amelia pedestrian hit by truck, killed | Richmond Times-Dispatch.

 

Rashmikant Dahyadhai Tatel of Amelia was walking along US Route 360 around 6pm on the night of January 7, when he was hit and killed by a pickup truck.

Brandon Finch of Amelia was driving a 1986 Dodge truck when he struck Mr. Tatel near US 360 Business.  Mr. Tatel was pronounced dead at the scene.

This accident is a sad reminder that it is important to slow down and try and be aware of pedestrians and bicyclists that share the roads with cars.  It seems that there have been more people walking and biking lately and they often have no sidewalks or separate lane to use in their travels.
