Texas School Crossing Guard Hit in Crosswalk
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A school crossing guard was hit in a
pedestrian accident in front of a Texas high school while trying to stop traffic. The crossing
guard was stationed at A&M Consolidated High School in College Station
when a 16-year-old male driver approached the marked crosswalk. The crossing
guard, a 58-year-old male, stepped out to stop traffic when the teen driver
hit him after not stopping. The individual was rushed to a local hospital
where he is being treated. It’s reported that his injuries do not
seem to be life-threatening and the investigation is currently ongoing
into the accident.
It’s estimated that over 65,000 people are injured each year due
to pedestrian accidents. Sadly, many of these accidents can be avoided
if both drivers and pedestrians are alert to their surroundings and to
each other. Anyone who is biking, running, walking or on sidewalks or
roadsides are in danger of being involved in a pedestrian accident. Drivers
and pedestrians both have responsibilities to obey all signs and signals
when driving and crossing roadways. However, pedestrian accidents can
cause severe injuries that can result in expensive medical bills, undue
stress and even possible home modifications to accommodate life-altering
injuries. Always contact a personal injury attorney if you or a loved
one has been injured in a pedestrian accident. An attorney will investigate
your case and can determine if you have grounds to pursue legal action
and if so, will defend your case in court to get the care and compensation
