Bridgeport – Pedestrian Crash
A pedestrian was hit by a car in Bridgeport yesterday.
At around 5:18 p.m., reports came in of a pedestrian accident at the intersection of East Washington Avenue and William Street. According to responders, a yellow car struck a person at the intersection. The pedestrian was hurt in the crash, while the vehicle incurred damage on its windshield. Officials have yet to identify parties involved in the incident but has already tended to everyone affected. An initial investigation of the accident has suggested the presence of illegal substances inside the offending vehicle, but authorities have yet to verify this. Updates to this post will be provided as soon as officials release more info.
Pedestrian incidents still occur despite the enforcement of various road safety laws across the state (and the country). This makes identifying the culprits/causes of these accidents very important as offenders have to be taken off the road and brought to justice. These things said, we should be aware of our rights as pedestrians and what we can be entitled to if ever we are involved in similar situations. Legal experts can also help us understand our options and guide us if ever we decide to take action against negligent parties.
