Baby Strollers and Street Crossings

A recent article   on Fox hi-lited a San Diego accident where a father was pushing a baby carriage across an intersection while walking with the mother when he and the baby were struck

by an SUV, and both suffered severe head injuries.

As a pedestrian injury attorney, accidents involving speeding SUVs striking pedestrians with strollers are more and more common. Here is another such accident.

Parents pushing a stroller should be aware that drivers may see them but be oblivious to a stroller. Additionally, parents and drivers should realize that it is difficult for a parent pushing

a stroller to change directions quickly.

Parents should also realize that some drivers get anxious and are afraid that the stroller-pushing parent will slow them down, so they actually accelerate when they see someone with

a stroller.

If you were a pedestrian and injured by a negligent driver, or if your child was injured, call me anytime for free, friendly advice. In Sacramento, 916-921-6400 or Elsewhere
