Our Boston personal injury lawyers would like to take this opportunity to wish you a safe and happy Fourth of July weekend.
Each year, countless people flock to Boston to celebrate our nation’s birthday. Many will walk, ride the T, or drive down to the esplanade on the Charles River for a day of fun before watching the spectacular fireworks display. There are truly a lot of great activities and a lot of fun to be had. However, with so many people coming into the city, is imperative that everyone does their part to stay safe and injury free. Both drivers and pedestrians can take actions to help prevent injuries.
A recent article on CBS Boston shows just one example of a fatal traffic accident involving pedestrians that occurred in this part of town. According to reports, a 28-year-old man and his girlfriend were at the Charles River esplanade before heading down Beacon Street when two cars collided. One of the vehicles rolled from the force of the collision and hit the young couple. He died at the scene and she was rushed to Brigham and Women’s Hospital where she later died. Lanzilotti was an employee of the Red Sox baseball organization, according to a team spokesperson. Boston Police continue to investigate this tragic accident but have not released any findings as of yet. Police are looking for anyone who may have witnessed the accident. People who live in the area told reporters that drivers frequently drive too fast in this area, and that may have contributed to the accident.
