Pedestrian accidents can be extremely dangerous to the pedestrian because they are not protected by a helmet, seatbelt, or other protective gear. These accidents can do serious damage, and they can have devastating impacts. It is important for all drivers to remember to look out for pedestrians and for pedestrians to remember to remain cautious and vigilant when crossing streets.
On May 25, the Boston Police Department received a report of a moving vehicle accident involving a pedestrian. The accident occurred around 6:20 in the morning on Bennington Street. Officer Robert Connolly initially responded to the scene, and other emergency responders arrived shortly after receiving notice of the accident.
Upon arrival, first responders administered care to the pedestrian who was injured and secured the scene for an investigation into the accident. The injuries were reported to be minor and non-life-threatening, but the extent of the injuries is still under review.
Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Pedestrian accidents can have severe consequences and their impacts can be detrimental and long-lasting. A victim’s life can be impacted for many years, and they deserve to get assistance and compensation for their injuries so they can focus on recovery. All drivers have a duty of care to share the road with pedestrians and watch out for them. Negligent driving can cause serious accidents.
