Jogger Awfully Killed in Pedestrian Accident

This blog on motorcycle accidents retell the story of a jogger who was killed in Oak Park reportedly because of a car accident. The accident, which claimed the life of a once lively, pro-active woman, happened one fine morning.

The authorities identified the jogger as Karey Marsh, 46, resident of Thousand Oaks. She was doing her early morning routine when then came a driver who turned out to be driving under the influence and bump her with his car.

Karey was reportedly thrown approximately 30 feet into thick bushes on the side of the road. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident near the intersection of Lindero Canyon Road and Bowfield Street.

The driver was identified as Nicolas Lagrotta, 23 years old. He was driving southbound on Lindero Canyon Road near Bowfield Street around 6:25 in the morning, when, for reasons known only to him, he suddenly swerved off the roadway and struck Karey who was then jogging in the bike lane.

Nicholas didn’t know he has killed Karey, not until police deputies suspected he had hit someone when they saw a jogging shoe on the pavement. They even have to use a thermal camera to find Karey’s body in the bushes – they even have to cut though heavy shrubs to be able to take her.

Nicholas suffered injuries and was taken to the hospital. He was later on arrested for vehicular manslaughter and suspicion that he was driving under the influence.

The gravity of the consequence of this pedestrian accident caused by Nicholas is despicable. The full force of the law must be applied to him. He has wronged someone – gravely. He must, at all cost, pay – dearly.
