A collision can take place in the blink of an eye and the sometimes fallout of a crash may also leave others nearby at risk. Individuals who are walking or waiting on a nearby sidewalk may find it difficult, if not impossible to move out of the way of a fast-moving vehicle that veers or is shoved off the road. A 27-year-old woman who was waiting at a bus stop in Washington was reportedly hospitalized with serious injuries after a nearby car accident left her pinned beneath a truck.
Attempting to flee a traffic stop can be a dangerous decision and the events that take place during a police pursuit could place the safety of everyone nearby at risk. Motor vehicle accidents that occur during a high-speed pursuit run the unfortunate chance of having catastrophic consequences. One person was killed and another suffered injuries following a recent car accident involving a suspected drunk driver in Washington.
Individuals who do a great deal of their traveling via sidewalks may find it advisable to have constant awareness of nearby vehicles. However, should a vehicle veer off road and onto a sidewalk, nearby pedestrians may find it nearly impossible to react in time to avoid a potential disaster. One person has died and another suffered injuries in a recent car accident in which a vehicle crossed onto a sidewalk before slamming into a nearby home in Washington.
