A woman was hit by a car at an intersection in Seattle, Washington. Officers
responded to the
pedestrian accident after receiving calls of someone struck by a car. The officers arrived
around 7:00 a.m. and found a woman that sustained a severe leg injury
from the accident. Medics drove the victim to a local hospital, and the
driver of the car was cooperating with authorities. A witness reported
that that particular area has a lot of pedestrian traffic. She expressed
concern that she’s seen a lot of close calls with pedestrian accidents
in that neighborhood and that it isn’t safe.
Pedestrian accidents injure over 65,000 people each year and leave many
victims with large medical bills, anxiety, stress and even life-altering
injuries. Pedestrians can be at risk for accidents mainly due to visibility
issues. Often drivers have a hard time seeing pedestrians whether it is
due to weather conditions, low visibility, distracted driving or even
pedestrian error. However, it is imperative to remember that if you are
involved in a pedestrian accident to call for medical assistance for you
or anyone who is injured in the accident. The next step is to contact
