State Trooper Killed in Pedestrian Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
accident occurred on Tuesday in Wilton when a state trooper was hit by a vehicle
around 6:15 in the morning. The accident occurred right after the state
trooper got out of his troop car and stepped onto the roadway to go help
a driver of an 18-wheeler. He was taken to receive medical attention for
his severe injuries, which could potentially be life-threatening. The
incident was an accident, and there are no charges expected to be pressed
against the driver of the vehicle responsible for the accident.
Handling roadside incidents can be very dangerous, especially on busy roadways
such as highways. Every year in the United States, around 5,000 pedestrians
are killed and about 60,000 pedestrians are injured. Often times, pedestrians
have the right away. However, sometimes drivers of vehicles tend to drive
distractedly, which is unsafe and can have detrimental results. Therefore,
to avoid accidents, drivers should always be careful and watch for pedestrians.
