Pedestrian struck on New Jersey roadway

Pedestrians are always at risk on the roads, and they're among those most likely to be killed if they are hit. For pedestrians to stay as safe as possible, it's the responsibility of drivers to pay attention and slow down when pedestrians are near.

In Trenton, New Jersey, a pedestrian was hit and injured in a crash near Franklin and Liberty Streets. The woman, who was near the roadway, was struck at approximately 5:30 p.m.

A witness at the scene quickly came to the woman's aid. He told reporters that she was conscious after being hit and was asking for help. He called for emergency help and stayed with the victim until the ambulance arrived. As of the Aug. 5 report, it was unclear what condition the woman was in or if the driver would be charged for striking her.

After any kind of pedestrian accident, it's important for the driver and witnesses to stay at the scene. As someone with a personal injury, it's witnesses who can help you back up your claim that the driver hit you negligently. If the driver does flee, it could be the witnesses that help identify them for you in the future. Additionally, both the driver and witness or witnesses at the scene should attend to you, offer support and call for emergency care.

No one should have to go through a serious pedestrian accident, but if you do, know that you have rights. The people around you should do all they can to make sure you recover and aren't struggling with medical bills.
