The spring time has arrived in Wisconsin. With the arrival of spring and nicer weather, there will be an increase of people going outside for walks and engaging in outdoor activities. Because of the increase in pedestrians on the sidewalks and outdoors, drivers need to be extra cautious to help keep the pedestrians safe. When an accident occurs between a motor vehicle and a pedestrian, the pedestrian will almost certainly get the worst of it. These accidents can cause serious injuries and even fatalities. This is why it is so critical that everyone practices caution and safe driving on the roadways.
Recently an accident occurred between a motor vehicle and a pedestrian in Milwaukee. The accident occurred on Friday, April 24, 2020 around 12:15 in the afternoon. It happened near North 27th Street and West Auer Avenue. The accident occurred when the pedestrian was crossing the street. A vehicle struck the pedestrian and then fled the scene of the collision. Law enforcement officials responded to the scene of the accident. The pedestrian was transported to the hospital as he sustained serious injuries as a result of the collision. The pedestrian is listed as being in critical condition.
Law enforcement officials were able to locate the motor vehicle that was involved in the collision. Unfortunately, when the vehicle was located it was found unoccupied. The City of Milwaukee Police Department is still investigating the accident and is looking for suspects that were involved in the collision.
It is very important to stay at the scene if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident. Additionally, safe driving is also essential to helping keep ourselves and others safe on the roadways. By ensuring that we obey all traffic laws, travel at safe speeds and keep our attention on the roadways, we can help to prevent auto accidents.
