Pedestrian accidents can be some of the most catastrophic accidents because pedestrians are not protected by gear like helmets or seat belts. These accidents leave pedestrians at risk of serious injury. This is why it is so important for all drivers to keep an eye out for pedestrians and remain cautious. By the same token, pedestrians should always remain vigilant when near roads.
On May 25, the Worcester Police Department received information about a pedestrian-vehicle accident with minor injuries. The accident occurred around 3 in the afternoon at the 100 block of Summer Street. Emergency responders quickly arrived at the scene.
Upon arrival, emergency personnel administered help to the pedestrian for minor injuries. While the extent of the injuries was still being determined, no fatalities were reported. The accident was cleared up within the hour.
