Meriden – Critical Injuries In Pedestrian Incident
A pedestrian was struck by an SUV in Meriden last Tuesday evening.
The incident occurred at approximately 7:26 p.m. in the vicinity of 450 East Main Street. Authorities received reports of the accident and quickly sent emergency teams to the area. According to responders, 57-year-old Maria Betancourt-Gamboa was walking west when she was struck by an SUV, throwing her a significant distance with her head hitting the pavement. She was immediately transported to Hartford Hospital where she is currently listed as critical. The driver of the truck immediately stopped and has cooperated with authorities. No word yet on DUI. Officials are still investigating the incident and are asking witnesses to contact them right away.
This case presents many of the circumstances that most pedestrian accidents typically include. The chances of incurring serious injuries in similar scenarios are quite high, and that makes establishing accountability extremely important if future incidents are to be avoided. These things said, pedestrians injured in any situation would benefit from consulting legal experts as their cases would be thoroughly evaluated and their options discussed.
