A man lost his life after getting struck by a vehicle on Interstate 35 north of Hillsboro last Saturday.

According to a local news source, Aldridge was on the northbound lanes, attempting to cross I-35 mile marker 370 when he was hit by a Dodge pickup truck. The Texas DPS troopers responded to the scene only to pronounce the victim dead. The driver of the suspect vehicle remained at the scene and is cooperating with Hillsboro authorities. His identification was not released.

No charges have been made as of this writing. Police continue to investigate the accident.

In Texas, car collisions happen on a regular basis. Most of the time, these events result in injuries and fatalities. Victims involved in crashes are left to deal with life-threatening injuries, damages to property, and worse—emotional trauma. While accidents are fortuitous events that cannot be foreseen, they can be prevented if only drivers had simply put their complete attention on the road and taken their responsibility as drivers more seriously. This is why, despite conscious efforts by government to combat the increasing number of fatalities and injuries every year, crashes due to negligence is still on the rise.

Being a victim of a collision is an overwhelming experience. If you or your loved one has been involved in a pedestrian collision, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention for yourself and anyone who needs it. After this, you’ll want to alert your insurance provider regarding damages or injuries you sustained from the collision. To submit a claim, you would need to gather documents supporting your claim. These may include a video of the scene or a photograph of the damages to the vehicles, police reports stating the facts of the accident, and medical records indicating the severity of your injury, to name a few.
