Pedestrian dies after being hit by car
By JAMIE PATTERSON
The investigation continues with the automobile accident that left one pedestrian dead over the weekend.
Freddie Taylor, 55, of Willow Wood Apartments, died about seven hours after being struck by a vehicle.
Arrius Freeman, the driver of the vehicle, has been charged with suspended license and no insurance.
“If speed proved to be a factor in this accident, there will be additional charges,” Chief Eric Snow said.
The accident occurred around 6 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Sixth Street and Lamar Avenue.
“According to witnesses, (Taylor) walked out in front of a green Ford Crown Victoria,” Snow said. “After being struck by the car, Taylor was taken to the University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead early the next morning.”
Yazoo County Coroner Ricky Shivers said Taylor died from multi-system trauma.
