Connecticut Jogger Critically Injured in Pedestrian Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A jogger sustained serious injuries after being struck in West Hartford,
Connecticut. Police reported that they responded to a call around 6:30
p.m. for a
pedestrian accident. Authorities said that the car headed southbound and the pedestrian was
jogging west when he was hit. Police officers were told by witnesses that
southbound traffic had the green light when the accident occurred. The
car approached the intersection and hit the victim who allegedly jogged
into the car’s path. Traffic lights and signals were reported to
be functioning correctly during the accident. The victim received critical
injuries and medics transported him to the hospital.
Thousands of people are injured each year in pedestrian accidents. It’s
important for all pedestrians to abide by signals, crosswalks and remaining
alert when trying to cross when traffic is present. However, it is also
wise to pay attention to traffic and other drivers. Pedestrians who have
the right-of-way still need to be alert to drivers who may be distracted
or not paying attention. Injuries caused by pedestrian accidents can be
severe and even life-threatening. Always contact a personal injury attorney
if you sustain injuries in a pedestrian accident. The driver of the vehicle
may be liable for your injuries and the medical expenses that occur from them.
