California woman injured when hit by truck

Just as vehicles are often involved in an accident, the same can hold true with pedestrians. Our California readers have been keeping current with the story of a woman in her nineties who was seriously injured when she was struck by a cement truck in San Francisco.

According to reports, the truck hit the woman as she crossed the street. The driver of the truck is cooperating with authorities, noting that he never saw the woman he hit. A witness who works in the area noted, "She was pinned under the first wheel of the driver side. When they put her in the ambulance, she was conscious, she was talking."

As a result of the accident, the woman was immediately taken to a local hospital where she underwent surgery. At this time, she is listed in critical condition.

Residents of the area have noted that jaywalking is common, however, there is no information as to whether or not this played a part in the accident. Four years ago, another woman was struck by a vehicle in the same area. This year alone in San Francisco there have been four pedestrian fatalities.

This type of accident could happen at any time on any road throughout the country. It is important for pedestrians to obey the law when crossing the street. At the same time, drivers need to pay close attention to those who are walking on the sidewalk or attempting to move from one side of the street to the other. With incidents like this one, a personal injury attorney may represent the victim.
