Another pedestrian accident downtown

CAREFUL: At Markham and Broadway.
  • CAREFUL: At Markham and Broadway.
I've confirmed that a pedestrian was hit by a car yesterday afternoon at an old problem intersection — Sixth and Broadway. The police say a report on the accident is not yet ready for release. I know this much: A pedestrian walking west across Broadway was struck by a truck turning south onto Broadway from Sixth.

I've written previously about the perils for pedestrians on Little Rock streets. It's so bad, the city banned pedestrians from using the crosswalk on Broadway at City Hall during weekday work hours. The city also informed me then that it had made pedestrian safety improvements at Capitol and Broadway, a block north of yesterday's accident.
