Truck driver charged in accident that killed pedestrian.

An Altoona man has been charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian’s right of way in connection with an accident that killed a 91-year-old Des Moines man Monday morning just south of downtown Des Moines.

Tracy Miller, 49, of Altoona, was driving a dump truck westbound on Maury Street and was making a right-hand turn onto Southeast 14th Street when he struck and killed Cecil H. Thornburg, who was using a motorized wheelchair to cross the roadway.

Thornburg was pronounced dead at the scene.

The failure to yield charge comes with a $195 fine, which includes court charges, said Sgt. Chris Scott, acting public information officer with the Des Moines police department.
