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 serious head injuries.

As a pedestrian injury attorney , accidents involving speeding SUV’s 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 the 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
