Pedestrian Accident Critically Injures Teen Near Fresno

I’m Ed Smith, a Fresno car accident lawyer. An eighth-grade student from Ahwahnee Middle School was on his way to school on the morning of Tuesday, September 12, 2017. The boy was crossing a street when he was struck by an oncoming vehicle. The collision, unfortunately, caused the boy to suffer critical injuries.

We would like to extend our best wishes for a swift and full recovery for the young boy that was injured in this devastating pedestrian accident.

What Happened?

A 14-year-old boy was crossing the street at the intersection of Bullard Avenue and Bond Street at approximately 7:40 am. The boy was struck by an oncoming SUV. The impact of the collision propelled the boy into the front yard of a nearby home.

Was the Boy Injured?

The pedestrian accident, unfortunately, severely injured the boy. He was transported to the Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno where he was listed in critical but stable condition.

What Caused the Pedestrian Accident?

Authorities are still investigating the cause of the pedestrian accident. A Traffic Collision Report may take up to two weeks from the date of the incident to be processed. Officials reported that the young boy allegedly ran from behind a bush into traffic. It is important to note that not all traffic reports are accurate pertaining to fault. If a victim has suffered serious or fatal injuries in a pedestrian accident, it is vital to contact an experienced Fresno car accident lawyer. An attorney with years of experience can examine the collision scene and investigate the sequence of events leading up to the accident to properly determine causation.

Message from Fresno Police

Officers from the Fresno Police Department have noted a significant increase in pedestrian accidents this year. More officers will be monitoring and educating students at Fresno schools on being aware while crossing the streets.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are vulnerable because they have no form of protection against a motor vehicle. It is crucial for all motorists to be aware of their surroundings and keep a watchful eye out for pedestrians to prevent such incidents. Pedestrians are also obligated to follow the rules of the road. For more information about pedestrian accidents, contact an experienced Fresno personal injury lawyer.
