Stratford – Pedestrian Injured In Accident
A pedestrian was struck by a car in Stratford last Saturday afternoon.
Authorities received reports of the accident at around 2:00 p.m. Emergency responders were dispatched to Barnum Avenue Cutoff, just in front of the Burlington Coat Factory, and discovered a pedestrian who sustained a leg injury after getting hit by a passing car. No word yet on whether or not the offending vehicle fled the area. EMS teams were immediately requested on-site and have since tended to the injured person. The case is currently under investigation. Officials will release more info when appropriate.
Officials have yet to identify anyone involved in the incident and whether or not this is a hit-and-run case. This is worth highlighting because fleeing from accident sites will only exacerbate cases against suspects. That said, it pays to be aware of our rights as pedestrians if ever we are involved in similar situations. With the help of expert counsel, instances of negligent behavior may allow victims to pursue legal cases against suspects.
