Car Accident Results in Woman’s Foot Pinned Under Car
Motor vehicles are not the only ones on the roadways. Cars, trucks, and SUVs also share the roadways with pedestrians and bicyclists. When car accidents happen, more than just motor vehicles can be involved, pedestrians and bicyclists can be impacted by the accident. Because of the risk of serious injuries and property damage when an accident occurs, it is important that all that are on the roadways take precautions to ensure the roadway is safe for all. By being attentive, adhering to the speed limit and avoiding distracted driving, the roadways are made safer for everyone. Unfortunately, accidents happen when drivers do not take the necessary safety precautions.
Recently, an accident occurred near North 27th Street and Fond du Lac Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The accident occurred when a vehicle ran a red light. When the first vehicle went through the red light, it crashed into another vehicle. The crash caused one of the vehicles to go up onto the curb, where a woman was standing at the bus stop. The woman at the bus stop got her foot pinned under the vehicle when it came onto the sidewalk. Law enforcement and the Milwaukee Fire Department responded to the accident. The woman whose foot was pinned was transported to the hospital by ambulance for treatment. Citations were issued at the scene of the accident.
This accident helps to show the importance of attentive driving. By paying attention to the roadways and avoiding distracted driving activities, you give yourself more time to respond to the unexpected in the roadways. By doing this, you can help to avoid accidents and keep the roadways safer for all. Not paying attention to the roadways while driving is not worth endangering your own safety or the safety of others on the roadways.
