Danbury – Fatal Pedestrian Accident
A senior died in a pedestrian incident in Danbury last Friday evening.
At around 8:00 p.m., 71-year-old Dona Kramer of Ohio was attempting to cross Federal Road, near Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana, when she was struck by a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado driven by a still-unidentified motorist. Kramer was seriously hurt in the crash and was immediately transported to Danbury Hospital where she eventually died from her injuries. According to officials, the driver was unable to avoid the pedestrian when she appeared in his/her view. The incident is still under investigation.
Authorities have yet to determine the cause of this incident and will continue to investigate until the cause is identified accurately. In this and other similar cases where causes are not readily apparent, investigators will have to look at all angles, including product defects, driver negligence, and even inadequate road signs. Of course, these are just a few of many possibilities. Whatever the outcome, the involvement of any form of negligence can enable injured parties to file for damages as deemed appropriate by legal experts.
