In Brownsville an 81 year-old man is dead after being run over by a 18 wheeler while crossing Highway 48 on Monday.
It happened just before 5pm on Highway 48 and 802 when the man tried walking across the highway with his wife. Traffic had stopped at the light, but when it began to move the 18 wheeler followed the flow of the traffic hitting and killing the elder man.
Officers had to block traffic to investigate and to clear the scene to find out the details on the accident, but police say the driver of the trailer most likely not face any charges because he had the right of way.
