• Sidewalk project begins 2 years after brothers hit, killed by truck

    Updated:

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Crews will start work on a sidewalk in west Charlotte Monday morning, two years after a driver hit and killed two children.

    In 2012, 5-year-old Kadrien Pendergrass and his 1-year-old brother Jeremy Brewton were hit by a delivery truck as they walked with their father along West Tyvola Road.

    After protests from residents and the boys’ family, Charlotte city leaders awarded a contract to a construction company to build the sidewalk in January.

    Neighbors who live nearby say the construction of the side walk has already taken too long, but once it's complete, they're convinced it will save lives.

    In the first phase of the project, crews will block part of the road this week to remove trees.

    The $720,000 project should be finished by June.
