Trumbull – Senior Pedestrian Struck By Car
A Trumbull resident was seriously hurt in an accident yesterday morning.
At approximately 8:53 a.m., local authorities received reports of a pedestrian who was hurt on White Plains Road (Route 127). Upon arriving at the scene, they discovered a seriously injured, 73-year-old man who was hit by a passing car while he was attempting to cross the road. The still-unidentified senior was attended to by people who witnessed the incident before officials arrived. EMS crews transported the victim to Bridgeport Hospital where he is currently listed as stable. The driver of the vehicle immediately stopped after the collision and has cooperated with authorities. The case is still under investigation, and officials are asking other people who may have witnessed the incident to contact them as soon as possible.
According to authorities handling this case, the victim was within a clearly marked crosswalk when he was hit by the vehicle. It’s also important to point out that the driver stopped, thus avoiding circumstances that might have aggravated her case. That said, investigators will study this incident thoroughly so that an accurate conclusion can be made. Whatever the outcome, if any form of reckless behavior or negligence is discovered, the victim may have legal options he can explore to help him find closure after this traumatic event.
