Accident victim identified

Scottsbluff Police have identified the victim who died in a car-pedestrian accident near the Avenue I and West Overland intersection Wednesday night as 38 year old James Maurice Feather of Scottsbluff.

Feather was walking across Avenue I just north of the intersection when he fell in front of a southbound car. When emergency vehicles arrived the man was beneath the vehicle and they had to work to free him. The victim died at the scene and was then taken to Regional West Medical Center for a planned autopsy today (Thursday).

The victim was believed to be walking in the area and was seen on surveillance video at the Sinclair convenience store located at the intersection shortly before the accident. Several witnesses observed the accident, according to Scotts Bluff County Attorney Doug Warner. The woman driver was not injured and Police have emphasized she was not at fault in the accident.
