Vehicle accidents can happen out of nowhere, and accidents that involve pedestrians can be especially dire. Pedestrians are not protected by helmets or other protective gear, and the injuries they sustain can be quite serious. All drivers must remember to share the road with pedestrians and pedestrians must remember to remain vigilant.
On May 25, the Boston Police Department received information about a pedestrian accident involving a moving vehicle. The accident involved minor injuries to the pedestrian, but the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening. The accident occurred on Meridian Street around 3:50 p.m.
Officer Joseph Greco was the first to arrive on the scene and other emergency personnel arrived shortly afterwards. Upon arrival, medical care was administered to the victims and statements were taken. The extent of the injuries is still being determined, but no fatalities were reported.
Injuries and Pedestrian Accidents
While the extent of these injuries appears to be minor, some pedestrian accidents are much more severe. Pedestrian accidents often cause serious injuries to victims. All drivers must remember to share the road and look out for pedestrians, and pedestrians must always remain attentive. Reckless driving puts vulnerable people on the road at risk.
