Maryland pedestrian accident kills woman, injures child

Pedestrian accidents occur all too frequently all over the state of Maryland. According to reports, a woman was killed and a 3-year-old child was injured in an accident on Riverdale Road in Riverdale. Police noted that both victims were rushed to the hospital for treatment, however, the woman later passed on.

Witnesses said that there were three lanes of traffic, and the vehicles in two of the lanes stopped to allow the woman and child to cross the road. However, an SUV driving in the third lane did not stop or slow down before mowing down the mother carrying groceries as she crossed with her child.. Witnesses added their belief that the driver of the SUV was either texting or talking on the phone when the accident occurred.

Many pedestrian accidents are the result of people who are crossing the street at the wrong place; however, this does not appear to be the case here. Instead, witnesses noted that the woman and daughter were using the crosswalk to make their way from one side of the road to the other.

Those who are familiar with the area noted that it is a potentially dangerous section of roadway for pedestrians, due to the fact that there is no stop sign or red light for the high-traffic area.

Authorities continue to investigate to determine if the driver will be charged with a crime.

Pedestrians have the right to cross the road, and drivers must be aware of this at all times. In the event that a person is killed or injured in an accident, the person or a loved one may wish to seek compensation by filing a lawsuit.
