1 Hospitalized after Fresno Pedestrian Accident on N Street
FRESNO, CA (July 20, 2020) – Saturday night, a person sustained injuries in a hit-and-run pedestrian crash on N Street.
According to reports, an officer found a vehicle on N Street near 8th Street about 10:00 p.m. He discovered that the vehicle had shattered the front windshield.
At the same time, authorities received a report of a black four-door car that struck a pedestrian and escaped the scene.
The police attempted to stop the vehicle. However, the driver continued driving.
Afterward, the suspect struck two parked vehicles and then fled on foot.
Meanwhile, responders transported the victim to a local trauma center and are expected to recover.
Pedestrians have the right of way at any crosswalk or intersection. Therefore, it’s a driver’s responsibility to yield and be prepared to stop.
While car accidents are far more common than pedestrian accidents, there is still reason to be wary when traveling on foot.
Common locations for these pedestrian incidents include shopping center entrances, street corners, and intersections.
