In an accident between a motor vehicle and a pedestrian, it is very often the pedestrian that suffers the most. Because of how vulnerable people on the street are, being struck by a car can result in catastrophic injuries. In many cases, pedestrians suffer broken bones, spinal cord injuries, head trauma and even death if they get hit by a car. This is why it is crucial for drivers to be attentive and cautious behind the wheel.
According to the King County Sheriff's Office, a 4-year-old boy was seriously injured when a Honda hit him. The incident recently happened a little over an hour after sundown when the boy's family and the boy were getting out of a van. The Honda was going approximately 40 miles per hour when it hit the 4-year-old. Apparently the driver pulled over but later fled the scene of the accident.
Many people rely on public transportation. Not only is it good for the environment, but it is also a great way to save for many commuters. With more commuters taking public transportation, such as buses, there are more pedestrians on or near busy roads. Unfortunately, that creates a higher chance of a pedestrian accident.
