1 Hurt in Richland Pedestrian Accident on State Route 243 and Columbia Boulevard

 
RICHLAND, WA (June 30, 2022) – Early Wednesday, a pedestrian suffered injuries in a hit-and-run crash on State Route 243 and Columbia Boulevard.
 
The incident occurred at about 3:49 a.m. on State Route 243 and Columbia Boulevard.
 
According to reports, a car struck a 14-year-old pedestrian. Then, the driver fled the crash scene.
 
When the authorities arrived, they found the victim roughly three miles south of Mattawa by milepost 11 of the highway.
 
Moreover, officers described the suspect vehicle as a silver Chevrolet Cavalier of an older model. Reports said that it drove southbound on S.R. 243. Then, it hit the victim and went south as it fled the scene. Officers said that the vehicle will have damage to the front and passenger side mirror.
 
Meanwhile, first responders took the victim to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland to address his severe injuries.
 
Furthermore, the authorities urged anyone with information about the incident to call WSP Detective Kukes at 509-925-2698.
 
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 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.
 
Steve Baric of Sweet Lawyers says, “The most valuable step you can take in response to a vehicle crash is hiring a personal injury attorney. Personal injury attorneys prioritize your recovery. At the same time, they will secure your future from further losses a severe accident can bring.”
