Jackson, MS (December 06, 2020) – Officers from the Jackson Police Department were dispatched to the scene of a fatal pedestrian accident in the northbound lanes of Interstate 55, just south of Briarwood Drive, during rush hour on Wednesday evening, December 2nd.
The man, who has since been identified as Joshua Robinson, was on foot when he was hit by an oncoming car.

Southbound traffic was re-directed while the scene was cleared.
Later that night, Robinson was pronounced dead by the Hinds County Coroner. It is currently unclear as to why the victim was struck. No information pertaining to the post-accident condition of the vehicle’s driver has been reported.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mr. Joshua Robinson, at this time.
Pedestrian Fatalities in Jackson
Distracted drivers are the leading source of car accidents that cause pedestrian fatalities. When a pedestrian has the light at an intersection or is inside a marked crosswalk they are entitled to the right of way. Whenever a driver’s concentration is given to their phone, their passenger, or their stereo instead of what’s going on around them, they often neglect to see pedestrians near or in the roadway in time to react appropriately.
