A pedestrian accident in San Marcos that left one man dead on Tuesday evening is being investigated by police.

Although the identity of the pedestrian killed in San Marcos has not yet been revealed, police say the crash occurred on Highway 123, when a man stepped into traffic and was struck by a vehicle traveling on the highway.

The driver of the vehicle did stop to check on the man and reports note the driver will probably not face charges related to the pedestrian accident in Texas.

Pedestrian accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, ranging from inattention by those traveling by foot and bicycle to distraction and improper driving practices for those operating vehicles. As many as 5,000 pedestrians are involved with traffic related accidents every year, highlighting the dangers associated with pedestrians and bicyclists sharing the roadways and sidewalks near our roads. Inadequate sidewalks, bike lanes and crosswalks can sometimes fail to offer necessary protection for our most vulnerable travelers.
