Diggs was pronounced dead at the scene.

The northbound lane of Highway 59 was closed for a time between Travis and Houston streets after the accident.

Auto-pedestrian accidents are a common fatality on Texas roads. There are many ways someone may be negligent in auto-pedestrians accidents, including distracted driving, failing to yield the right-of-way, and disobeying traffic laws. In most cases, it is clear that the driver usually remains at fault in auto-pedestrian accidents due to the factors listed prior.

For the case above, it remains to be seen who exactly is liable since Diggs walked outside the intended crosswalk. But because there was a wrongful death, the family of Diggs may be entitled to file a wrongful death suit against the vehicle that hit Diggs.
