Two pedestrians lost their lives in a Sacramento truck accident near Elder Creek Road and South Watt Avenue. According to news reports, two men were standing on the side of the road, when the unsuspecting pedestrians were run over by the truck. Paramedics responded to the accident scene and rushed the two men to a local hospital.
The two pedestrians were treated for their accident injuries at the emergency room. They are expected to recover from their wounds. Pedestrian accidents can have major consequences, especially when a truck is involved. Truckers have to be ever vigilante on the road and expect the unexpected. Any collision with a pedestrian can have dire results such as injury or death.
As a Sacramento personal injury lawyer I urge motorists to always cede the right away to pedestrians and take extra care when children or a school bus is present. Watch your speed and cover your brake when driving in a residential area or when near a school. If you or a loved one were hurt in a pedestrian accident, speak with a personal injury lawyer to discuss your case and the possible legal options available to you.
