Lufkin, TX (11/26/2019) – A homeless woman was killed while crossing a street at a green light early Tuesday morning around 12:10 a.m. in Lufkin.

The incident happened at the intersection of Frank Avenue at Loop 287 when a woman driving in the inside lane stopped at a green light to allow a homeless woman to cross the intersection. Matthew Battise, 26, was driving in the outside lane, did not see the woman because of the car stopped at the green light, and ultimately hit the homeless woman.

The woman was transported to CHI St. Luke’s Memoral Lufkin, where she later died from her injuries sustained in the accident.

Unfortunately, pedestrians are at a disadvantage when it comes to personal safety on the streets of Houston. Motorists frequently fail to see pedestrians on or alongside busy roads, and it only takes a second for a serious accident to occur. Because there are many conflicting factors that led to the homeless woman’s death, legal assistance may be essential to figure out who may be exactly at-fault.
