Stefan Molnar Critically Injured on U.S. 93 Pedestrian Crash

 
Jackpot, NV (June 13, 2020) – On Wednesday night, a 78-year-old Stefan Molnar, resident of Jackpot, sustained critical injuries in a pedestrian crash on U.S. 93.
 
The crash happened at about 8:55 p.m on June 10. Dispatched officers then responded and located a tractor-trailer rig and the injured pedestrian on the scene.
 
Reportedly, a red 2019 Freightliner towing a trailer heading south through Jackpot approaching the intersection with Ace Drive. There, Molnar was walking from east to west across U.S. 93 intersection.
 
Moreover, the driver did not notice Molnar until he was close to the intersection. The driver then attempted to avoid and steered to the right, but the left front of the Freightliner hit the pedestrian.
 
As a result, Molnar sustained severe injuries, and as of Saturday, he is still in critical condition.
 
Meanwhile, the Freightliner driver, a 27-year-old man from Redlands, remained at the scene and cooperated with the police.
 
Further investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about the incident may call 775-752-3235 about case 200600582.
 
In today’s current state of affairs, more individuals have taken it upon themselves to walk outside daily. However, the increase in foot traffic is resulting in a surge of pedestrian accidents. Therefore, it is important to follow the tips we listed below to avoid this kind of accident.

Pedestrian Safety Tips

  • Make yourself visible: wear bright coloured clothes and carry a flashlight if you are walking at night.
  • Avoid dangerous behaviours: always walk on the sidewalk (no jaywalking), stay sober and make eye contact with drivers – don’t assume the driver can see you.
  • Stay off your phones, talking and especially texting distracts you from paying attention to your surroundings.
  • Look before you step: cross streets at marked crosswalks/intersections, obey traffic signals and watch for turning vehicles.
  • Look left-right-left before crossing a street.
  • For Drivers to Protect Pedestrians

  • Don’t speed, follow the speed limit and never use your phone; always be cautious of your surroundings.
  • Never drive under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
  • Look out for pedestrians, especially in hard-to-see conditions such as at night or in bad weather.
  • Pedestrians have the right of way at any crosswalk or intersection, so yield and be prepared to stop.
  • Stop at the crosswalk stop line to give drivers in other lanes an opportunity to see and yield to pedestrians too.
  • Be cautious when backing up – pedestrians, especially young children, can move across your path.
  • Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney
    • A lawyer will exhaust every avenue to ensure you get the maximum settlement. They will speak to witnesses, analyze evidence, and obtain important data that will help your case.
    • Having legal representation can help you attain compensation on Medical bills, loss of earnings, future medicals, and more.
    •
