WPRI: Pedestrian killed in Seekonk identified as Dorchester man

In Fatality, Outside Providence, Pedestrian Struck by Jef Nickerson1 Comment

walkinpvd-iconSeekonk police have identified the pedestrian that was killed in the town last week as Steven Nixon of Dorchester.

No charges are pending against the driver, a 25-year-old man from East Providence, according to police.

Police said the area where the crash occurred is poorly lit, and there are no sidewalks.


In contrast to the last post, there’s no charges here. Because the road is poorly lit and there are no sidewalks? Should maybe the person who designed the road be charged with negligence in the death?

  1. No sidewalks, but people walk up and down that street all the time. They walk it because there is a RIPTA stop on 114, and – at least this has always been my assumption- its the closest public transportation stop to that part of big-box haven. As someone who drives that street at least every other day, I can tell you that there are many close calls between cars and pedestrians. Seekonk officials should know better.
