Luis Colon (Fatality)
8305 Redbraes Drive
311 Como Street
On August 3, 2012 at approximately 2:53 p.m., a 1995 Ford Taurus driven by Reicel Pelaez was traveling northbound on Sheldon Road in the left through lane. There was a vehicle slightly ahead of the Ford Taurus in the right lane also traveling northbound. As the vehicles cleared the intersection of Waters Avenue, pedestrian Luis Colon walked westbound into the roadway, a few feet north of the crosswalk and against a red pedestrian signal. Mr. Colon crossed one lane and was narrowly missed by the lead car. Mr. Colon continued into the second lane directly into the path of the Ford Taurus.
Mr. Colon was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital with life threatening injuries. Mr. Colon died at Kindred Care on October 15, 2012.
