Bridgeport – Pedestrian Accident
A pedestrian was struck by a vehicle in Bridgeport late Tuesday evening.
The incident was reported to authorities at approximately 11:00 p.m. According to officials, one person was in front of 200 East Main Street when he/she was struck by a still-unidentified vehicle. No word yet on hit-and-run or hospitalization, but EMS teams were requested on-site. The area was quickly cleared and, as of posting time, the incident is still under active investigation. No one has been identified yet and officials will do so, as well as release other pertinent info, when appropriate.
Pedestrian incidents in high-traffic urban areas frequently involve reckless or negligent behavior. Getting to the bottom of these cases requires diligence on the part of crash investigators. We should expect them to establish accountability in due time. This is important because injured pedestrians should be given opportunities to cope and find closure. Bringing suspects/culprits to justice is just one aspect of this. Under proper circumstances, victims may also have the option of filing damage claims against liable parties.
