Greenwich – Pedestrian Injured At Crosswalk
A pedestrian was hit by a passing car in Greenwich last Monday afternoon.
At approximately 1:40 p.m., a man was attempting to cross the intersection of Byram and Frontage Roads when a car hit him. He sustained injuries in the collision and was immediately tended to by responding EMS crews. He was transported to the hospital for evaluation and further treatment. According to officials, the driver of the vehicle did not notice the pedestrian crossing the roadway, failing to check all directions before crossing the intersection. The accident is still under investigation, and authorities have yet to identify any party involved in the incident.
This case highlights some of the circumstances that precede intersection accidents, particularly those involving pedestrians. Intersections are inherently dangerous areas for both pedestrians and motorists. Hopefully, establishing accountability can help authorities make changes that will improve road safety for everyone.
