Pedestrian struck, killed in Springfield Township

Tragedy struck the family of a Springfield Township, Ohio resident following the announcement of a pedestrian accident on Monday afternoon. The pedestrian was struck and killed at the corner of Winton Road and Cloveriew Avenue in Springfield Township by a 2016 Ford F-150. At the time of the reporting, it was uncertain whether authorities will charge the driver, who was uninjured in the accident.

Sadly, pedestrian accidents are more common than one might think. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2013 nearly 5,000 Americans were killed in traffic crashes throughout the United States. To put things into perspective, that is nearly one fatal pedestrian accident every two hours throughout the year.

Even if not deadly, pedestrian accidents also lead to over 150,000 serious injuries each year. While undoubtedly many of those incidents were true accidents, unfortunately, alcohol played a role in nearly half of all fatal pedestrian accidents, with one third of all drivers involved driving while under the influence. It is not uncommon for pedestrians under the influence of drugs or alcohol to also play a role in such accidents.

As we have stressed before, accidents can happen to anyone at any time, and could lead to serious personal injuries or even death. Victims involved in a pedestrian accident may be entitled to compensation for their injuries, including pain and suffering, lost wages and costs associated with medical expenses and rehabilitation. One may want to speak with a legal professional to see whether they qualify.
