Pedestrian Accident Hospitalizes Six in Seattle
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
At least six people were hospitalized due to a
pedestrian accident in a busy downtown Seattle street. A shuttle van drove into a crowd of
people and then the van then crashed into a department store window. The
driver reportedly suffered from a medical emergency which caused the pedestrian
accident to occur. Several onlookers ran to the scene to help the victims
who were injured until medical assistance could arrive. Authorities reported
that driver of the van and a pedestrian who was injured by the department
store glass were also taken to the hospital. They also reported that the
driver will undergo toxicology tests.
Pedestrian accidents occur every eight minutes in the United States. They
can range from slips, trips, falls and being struck by a vehicle or a
bicycle. Being hit by a vehicle is the third most common pedestrian accident
in the U.S. and is a scary statistic. Injuries caused by these accidents
can be expensive, stressful and life changing. It is always important
