Pedestrian Accidents at Intersections
When a pedestrian is injured at an intersection, it’s often due to one of two things. One, the driver of the vehicle involved in the accident was not paying attention to their surroundings and struck a pedestrian who was rightfully crossing the street, or two, the pedestrian was not crossing at a time when they were allowed to. It’s important for all drivers to be aware of their surroundings as they drive, and pedestrians need to be sure that they are crossing when they are allowed to ensure injuries do not occur.
