A retired firefighter was attempting to help his son when he was hit and killed by a vehicle on Interstate 485 on Wednesday evening, January 24. The accident shut down all inner lanes in the Mint Hill area. The man was retired Capt. Tony Moore. According to NC State Highway Patrol, at approximately 7:25 p.m. troopers responded to an accident involving a pedestrian on the I-485 inner loop, near mile marker 43.
Troopers said three vehicles had been involved in an accident and each had been moved to the median on I-485. The driver of one of those vehicles had called his father who then traveled to the scene to help his son. As the father was dropped off he attempted to cross the interstate. As he did so, the man, later identified as Moore, was struck by a Chevrolet pickup truck and passed away from his injuries.
At The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor, our hearts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and loved ones of Tony who suffered this tragic loss of life. We share our condolences for this devastating pedestrian accident.
