Saturday evening was like any other for most of the congregation at St. Louis Catholic Church, until a vehicle struck a couple as they left mass around 5:30 p.m. The man and woman, both 83-years-old, crossed the street in Caledonia, Wisconsin and were hit by an SUV, driven by a 32-year-old woman. Those who attended the mass, witnessed the accident and unsuccessfully attempted to save them. The drivers two children were also in the SUV, and were uninjured along with their mother. Authorities are continuing to investigate the accident, but believe alcohol was not involved.
Pedestrian accidents typically result in serious injury or death due to the amount of force exerted by the vehicle. There are several precautions pedestrians can take to avoid being hit by a car including using crosswalks, wearing reflective clothing, and walking on sidewalks. However, using every safety precaution may not prevent an accident involving a vehicle. Victims, or their families, should contact an accident attorney to have their accident fully evaluated.
