Pedestrians can suffer great harm when they are struck by motor vehicles. Sometimes, such accidents result in pedestrians suffering head injuries. Such injuries can be very serious and can have a variety of negative impacts on a person.
Recently, a car vs. pedestrian accident occurred in California which resulted in a man suffering a head injury.
The accident occurred last Saturday. Reportedly, that night, a 62-year-old man was crossing a road in San Francisco. Allegedly, an SUV then hit the man. According to authorities, the SUV drove off after this car vs. pedestrian accident occurred. Authorities reportedly are in the process of trying to find the SUV and its driver.
According to the SF Appeal, the 62-year-old man who was crossing the road suffered a head injury in this car vs. pedestrian accident. The injury the man suffered reportedly is critical in nature. The man was taken to a hospital in the area after the accident occurred.
As this incident illustrates, car vs. pedestrian accidents can result in pedestrians sustaining serious injuries, such as head injuries.
Because car vs. pedestrian accidents can be so harmful, it is very important for motor vehicle drivers in California to do everything they reasonably can to prevent car vs. pedestrian accidents when out on the roads. This includes watching for pedestrians when driving. It also includes exercising appropriate care when driving in areas where pedestrians are present. If motor vehicle drivers fail to do these things, they could be putting pedestrians in harm’s way.
