Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation
In the United States, a pedestrian is killed every 2 hours and a pedestrian is injured every 7 minutes by vehicles. Pedestrians should wear reflective clothing, carry a flashlight, use crosswalks, and walk on sidewalks if available. In 2012, 4,743 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes and 76,000 were injured. These statistics prove that even if a pedestrian follows all the suggested safety measures, they don't guarantee their safety.
In Belleville, IL vehicles struck two pedestrians in separate accidents. A male in his early 30s was the first victim Tuesday morning and he refused medical treatment. The second victim was a 39-year-old woman who sustained head and leg injuries are was transported to the hospital via ambulance. Accidents involving a pedestrian are quite traumatic and typically result in serious injuries or death.
