Pedestrian Injured in Florin Road Hit-and-Run Crash [Sacramento, CA]

Woman Struck and Injured in Sacramento Crash

Sacramento, CA (July 10, 2021) – On Tuesday, a female pedestrian was injured in Florin Road hit-and-run crash.

The accident happened at the intersection of Fawn Way.

The authorities said a pedestrian was crossing the intersection when she stepped in front of an eastbound vehicle. That vehicle slowed down, but as she kept walking, another vehicle struck her.

She was thrown into the road and the suspect vehicle drove eastbound.

Right away, rescuers took the unidentified pedestrian to Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Moreover, the authorities said the driver who avoided the pedestrian remained at the scene and described the hit-and-run driver’s car. Officers said it may have been a gray 2002 to 2004 Mercedes C Class.

Meanwhile, please call the CHP South Sacramento Area at 916-897-5600 and ask for Officer Trush if you have details about the crash. You may also call Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at 916-443-HELP (4357)

Since you cannot read the intention of the driver in front of you, don’t tailgate. Make it your practice to always maintain some distance between your vehicle and the one ahead in order to give yourself enough response time should the vehicle ahead make a sudden turn or stop.

Prevention Is Always Better Than Cure

While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities we do daily. That is because auto accidents are a major public health threat. Traffic accidents are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.

That is why it is indeed crucial that everyone drives defensively in order to avoid traffic accidents as much as possible.

Meanwhile, here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving

First, always drive at a controllable speed.

Then, it is also important not to assume you know the other driver’s intention.

Lastly, always act positively in any situation.

This one, we should never neglect. Yield at intersections, even if you have right of way.

Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.
