Pedestrian accidents can be some of the most dangerous vehicle-related accidents because pedestrians are not protected by any protective gear such as helmets. These accidents can do serious damage, and they can leave victims suffering from long-lasting injuries that mean repeated medical treatments. It is important for all drivers to remember to look out for pedestrians and for pedestrians to remain aware when crossing roads.
On May 31, the Boston Police Department received a report of a moving vehicle accident involving a pedestrian. The accident occurred around 11 at night on Beacon Street. Officer Michael Coppinger initially responded to the scene, and other emergency responders arrived shortly afterwards to provide support.
Upon arrival, first responders administered care to the injured pedestrian and secured the area for investigation into the collision. The injuries do not appear to have been life-threatening, but the extent of the injuries is still under review.
