Accidents involving pedestrians can be very dangerous, and they can cause significant damage to victims’ lives. These accidents can leave people with serious injuries that impact their lives for years to come. We must stress the importance of driving attentively and follow the rules of the road at all times. Drivers must remember to share the road with pedestrians, and pedestrians must also remain aware of their surroundings.
On May 31, a 28-year-old man was taken to a hospital after being hit by a vehicle while skateboarding. Police received word of the accident and arrived at the scene near Pocasset Street and Broadway.
The victim has been identified as Jared Almond. He was unable to stop his skateboard as he approached the intersection and collided with a motor vehicle. He sustained injuries, but they did not appear to be life-threatening. The accident was reported just before 9 in the morning, and police cleared the scene within half an hour.
Injuries and Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accident can be quite serious. Thankfully, Jared Almond appears to not have suffered severe injuries, and we wish him a speedy recovery. Some pedestrian accidents can be much more dire. Drivers must remember to remain conscious of their surroundings, and pedestrians must be careful, too. We must all do our part to keep our roads safe for all.
