There are many reasons why motor vehicle accidents occur. Often times weather conditions play a big role, and many officials are wondering whether or not the rain was a major factor in a crash that happened late last night in Bucks County. The accident took place in Warminster Sunday night around 11:30 and left a pedestrian with possibly very serious injuries.
According to police, a person who was driving an SUV struck and injured a pedestrian at the intersection of North Warminster and County Line Roads. Unlike many similar crashes, the SUV remained at the scene which implies a lack of guilt. Nevertheless, the victim of the crash was quickly rushed to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries. The degree of harm suffered by the victim could range anywhere from minor to catastrophic injuries as their exact condition has not been released.
No matter what, most vehicle vs pedestrian accidents yield some sort of serious injury for the latter. The apparent lack of protection is a major reason why, and every driver on the road must always be aware of their surroundings. Many serious lawsuits could likely stem as a result of this accident.
