Pedestrian Struck and Injured by Car on Lawrence Drive in Newbury Park
NEWBURY PARK, CA (March 06, 2019) – A pedestrian sustained moderate injuries after being hit by a vehicle in Newbury Park Thursday evening. The age and gender of the injured pedestrian were not immediately released.
Reports from the Ventura County sheriff’s office said that the incident was initially reported to have occurred near Rancho Conejo Boulevard and Lawrence Drive at around 10:08 p.m. However, deputies located the vehicle in the 1200 block of Lawrence Drive, southwest of the original site.
An initial investigation indicated that the driver loaded the victim into their car and attempted to take the pedestrian to the hospital. The pedestrian, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, was later transferred to an ambulance for transport.
Whether you are a driver or a pedestrian, it is important to abide by all traffic laws and observe safety precautions. If you’re behind the wheel, always watch out for pedestrians. Slow down, prepare to stop, and be extra careful especially when driving through an intersection, school zones, parks, or residential areas. If you’re a pedestrian, always walk on a sidewalk or a crosswalk. If the road doesn’t have sidewalks, walk on the shoulder and face oncoming traffic. This way, you and the motorists have a better chance of seeing one another and react if a situation arises.
