UPDATE 11/11: The pedestrian, 23 year old Jordan Pfenning of Springfield, has died. He suffered head injuries and a broken pelvis in the accident.


  1. While I feel strong sadness about the loss of this young man, I am curious to learn whose fault this tragedy really is.

  2. the person who ran a red light at high speeds and killed a person would be my guess!

    1. Hmm I also heard that a person who was highly intoxicated ran into road??

  3. The 9th; was this the day that the traffic signals weren't cycling (stayed on blinking caution for through traffic)?

  4. Hope they did a tox screen on both driver and victim

  5. Think that might have been the next day when VSP were on scene taking measurements, etc.

  6. Until the facts of the accident are presented, no one should be accusing anyone of being at fault. After all, it is labeled "accident" for a reason. Imagine yourself as the driver in this situation, and if it were not your fault, how would you be feeling? It is a tragedy either way that someone lost their life, but perhaps an accident that was not to be blamed on someone.

  7. Although many rumors have been spread it is now known that neither Jordan (victim) or Michael (driver) had been under the influence of any substance.... it is a TRAGIC loss and he will be greatly missed ..... we gotta keep in mind accidents do happen ...... all these finger pointers and people just running their mouths need to take a breather..... let the family mourn

      Angel, all those people who log as "Anonymous" do so because it's a place for them to vent safely, even at the cost of appearing like morons. We can only hope it lets them vent enough so they don't continue to beat their spouse.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
