On June 10, an accident involving two motorcycles and a pedestrian was reported. The accident occurred when two police officers on motorcycles collided with each other. Police on the scene of the incident say that two on-duty officers were responding to a call of an officer needing medical help when they ran into each other and hit a pedestrian.
This incident occurred at the Pride Parade in Boston. The elderly woman who was hit was watching the parade when the accident occurred. All three people sustained injuries and were transported to Massachusetts General Hospital. The crash did not disrupt the parade, and traffic was not impacted. No fatalities were reported, and the scene was cleared within the hour. The identity of the pedestrian has not been released.
Injuries and Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents can be some of the most dire vehicle accidents as they can leave pedestrians suffering from serious injuries. Pedestrians are not protected by a vehicle or by any safety gear, and this means they are vulnerable parties on the road. Pedestrians are exposed completely and impact with a vehicle can have deadly consequences. All drivers must always remember to look out for pedestrians at all times and remain vigilant.
The serious nature of this incident shows just how severe some pedestrian accidents can be and how they can impact multiple people. Even police officers can end up causing a pedestrian accident, and this should remind us all of the importance of staying vigilant whenever we are behind the wheel. Negligent driving can have severe consequences and leave victims suffering from injuries that impact their lives in harmful ways for years to come.
