1 Hurt in San Diego Pedestrian Accident on 3600 54th Street
SAN DIEGO, CA (June 22, 2022) – Early Tuesday, a 50-year-old man suffered injuries in a pedestrian crash on 3600 54th Street.
The incident occurred at around 12:20 a.m. in the 3600 block of 54th Street. According to reports, the man tried to cross from the west to the east sidewalk outside a crosswalk. Then, a 33-year-old driver in a 2003 Mercury Mountaineer driving south in the No. 2 lane of 54th Street hit him.
Reports said that the pedestrian “ran in front of the vehicle.” As a result, the crash occurred and left him with serious injuries. He sustained a fractured right femur and right knee, rib fractures, and liver laceration. However, the authorities considered the injuries as non-life-threatening.
Furthermore, the authorities ruled out alcohol as a factor in the crash.
If you feel yourself drifting into other lanes due to fatigue or any other reason, safely pull over and rest before continuing to drive. You can also call a friend or an Uber to pick you up if you feel like it would be unsafe to drive.
Ways to Deal with Pedestrian Accidents
Each year, around 20-50 million people are injured or become disabled due to a crash. To avoid suffering from such incidents, practice safe driving habits on the road at all times.
As a driver, it’s your responsibility to do it even when it is empty, even when there is no police officer around to make sure you make, say, a complete stop.
Even with the best driving habits, it is still important to know what to do if you find yourself in a motor vehicle accident.
