Michael Carter Killed in Auto-Pedestrian Crash on SH 21 near Caldwell, TX

Caldwell, TX — December 20, 2022, 23-year-old Michael Carter died in an auto-pedestrian accident on State Highway 21 near Caldwell.

Authorities are still investigating but say the incident happened around 7:55 p.m. on Highway 21 near County Road 103. Police believe Carter entered the roadway ahead of an eastbound Infiniti vehicle and was fatally struck. The driver was unhurt in the collision.

No further information is currently available.

People may see that the victim allegedly walked into a highway's travel lanes and conclude that the accident, while terrible, was a consequence of that decision. However, accidents of all sorts--including those with pedestrians--are often more complex than they seem. It's always important to find out whether there's more to the story than a few vague sentences in the news suggest.

Do things have to be more complicated than someone being in the wrong place at the wrong time? Not necessarily, but I think most would agree that the loss of a young man's life is more than enough reason to investigate carefully and ensure facts, not guesses or assumptions, tell the story. Will police efforts alone be enough to get real answers?
