UPDATE: The State Highway Patrol says the man hit and killed by a car last night is Georg Peter Anderl. The 53-year-old just moved to Wilmington from Cedar Rapids, IA, for his job with Chemtex USA.

Investigators say Anderl missed a 10 a.m. meeting today, and that’s when his company alerted police. Coworkers say Anderl was a very dedicated executive, so they knew something was wrong when he did not show up to work.

Anderl’s wife and two children still live in Cedar Rapids. Troopers say his family was notified by Iowa State Highway Patrol Tuesday afternoon.

    I worked with Georg for 17 years. He was a good person, and this is truly a heartfelt loss. I didn’t always agree with Georg, but I respected him, and never in all the time I knew him did I ever think he didn’t have everyone’s welfare at heart. People can debate who was at fault, the character of the drivers, I don’t care it’s just such a senseless loss. My thoughts are with Kathy and the kids, R.I.P Georg….

    I have no comment on this tragedy other than I go through this intersection daily and every time I do I feel like the timing at this light is “off” Has anyone else noticed this at this intersection?
