Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable people on the roads. Accidents involving pedestrians can be some of the most severe as pedestrians are not protected by a vehicle or a helmet. The risk of serious injury is high with these incidents. Drivers must remember to look out for pedestrians and pedestrians must always remain vigilant.
On May 27, the Boston Police Department received a call about a pedestrian accident that occurred on 350 Blue Hill Avenue. The accident was reported around 2 in the afternoon, and police and other first responders arrived at the scene shortly afterwards.
Officer Wayne Hester was the first to arrive, and he found that a pedestrian was suffering from injuries. EMS administered care to this individual, but the extent of their injuries is still being determined. However, no fatalities were reported.
Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries
While the cause of this accident is still being investigated, the injuries to the pedestrian illustrate how serious these accidents can be. Drivers must remember to share the road with pedestrians and remain cautious when pedestrians are around. Also, pedestrians must remain aware when they are near roads. When these accidents happen, victims can seek assistance so they can recover from their injuries.
