The incident site was cleared at around 11:00 p.m. Officials are currently investigating the case and are asking witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.
Authorities investigating pedestrian incidents are always concerned about the involvement of negligent behavior in any of these cases. This factor has to be identified early so that responsible parties can be apprehended and stopped from causing more damage or injuries. That said, pedestrians injured due to negligence should consult legal experts to determine if seeking damages could be a suitable course of action.
