Motorist charged in pedestrian accident that left man injured

With New Jersey cities thriving these days, vehicles and pedestrians are often in very close proximity. Walking along crowded roadways can be very risky, and with populations steadily increasing, more and more pedestrians are put in harm's way. A recent pedestrian accident in Newton left one person injured a motorist facing charges.

The accident happened during the afternoon hours at a busy intersection in Newton. Reports report that a Honda Civic was making a right turn at the intersection and struck a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Police say the driver of the Honda failed to see the pedestrian.

The pedestrian was in a crosswalk while attempting to cross the street and had the walk signal, according to police reports. The pedestrian had pain in his right leg due to the collision and and was transported to a local medical center for treatment. The driver of the Honda was uninjured but was charged with failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk and careless driving.

Because cities in the great state of New Jersey are such great places to live and work, populations are on the rise. Unfortunately, as populations continue to increase, so will accidents. Although there are laws in place to protect pedestrians, accidents involving pedestrians and motor vehicles will continue to occur. It is important for victims to know that they have the right to pursue claims for damages for injuries suffered as a result of negligence in a pedestrian accident. A successful lawsuit could provide much-needed compensation to help victims cover mounting medical expenses.
