Car accidents can be extremely devastating, and they can happen at any time. These accidents can sometimes leave victims suffering from injuries that impact their lives in detrimental ways for years to come. The potential for a serious accident to happen should remind us all to remain vigilant whenever we are driving. Drivers who do cause accidents also have a responsibility to remain at the scene.
On June 3, the Cambridge Police Department received information about a vehicle accident involving a pedestrian and a hit-and-run driver. The accident occurred around 4 p.m. and occurred on Essex Street. One victim sustained injuries in the accident, and medical care was administered to this individual. There were no fatalities reported.
According to internal reports, Dorchester resident was involved in the accident, and her daughter had been struck by a motor vehicle which failed to stop after the incident. The woman told police that the driver paused for a second or two before driving away.
Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries
Pedestrian accidents can be quite severe at times. These individuals are not protected by helmets or seatbelts, and impact with a vehicle can cause serious injuries. Drivers must remember to remain aware and share the road with pedestrians, and pedestrians must also stay vigilant when near street. Drivers who cause these accidents must be accountable and remain at the scene.
