Car Accident Injures Six Pedestrians in L.A.
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Six individuals were transported to the hospital after sustaining injuries
from flying debris after a car crashed into a cement planter and then
a pole in Los Angeles. The
car accident happened during the annual Los Angeles Auto Show and not far from its
location at the downtown Convention Center. A member of the Fire Department
reported that eight people were checked for injuries and six were receiving
treatment at local hospitals. He also reported that the victims, aged
31-48, had all sustained injuries that were non-life-threatening. It was
no certain if any of the pedestrians were struck by the car.
It is estimated that over 150,000 pedestrians visit the emergency rooms
each year due to pedestrian-related injuries. As the story above indicates,
a pedestrian accident can occur anywhere and even in the strangest locations.
Anyone who is walking on a sidewalk or roadside is in danger in being
involved in a pedestrian accident. It is always wise to increase your
visibility when walking at night by wearing reflective clothing and carrying
a flashlight. Remember to always use crosswalks or intersections when
available and if you have to walk on the shoulder of the road do so facing
traffic. These tips can help prevent you or a loved one being involved
in a pedestrian accident.
