Steve Jaimes (Fatality)
7334 Swindon Road
On September 30, 2017, at 10:36 p.m., Angel Rivera was driving his 2007 Toyota Camry, southbound on Memorial Highway at approximately 40 mph. The pedestrian, Steve Jaimes was walking southbound on Memorial Highway along the center of the inside (left) southbound lane. According to a witness, Mr. Jaimes was stumbling in the roadway and did not respond to the horn honking as other vehicles swerved around him. Due to the lighting conditions and Mr. Jaimes' failure to use the provided sidewalks on either side of the roadway, Mr. Rivera did not see Mr. Jaimes and struck Jaimes with the center front of his vehicle. Mr. Jaimes died at the scene. Next of kin has been notified and no charges are expected.
The investigation continues.
