Police say drivers must get off cell phones to prevent deadly crashes involving pedestrians
An alarming trend is increasing as more and more people are hit and killed along Ozarks roadways. From busy highways to windy rural roads, six pedestrians have died within the last few months after they were struck by a car. So far this year 23 people died in crashes compared to just seven from the same time frame last year. To date six fatalities have included pedestrians. It's a trend many are hoping will end.
