Car vs. pedestrian accident in New Jersey results in pedestrian getting injured

Pedestrians can suffer significant harm when they are struck by motor vehicles. Such accidents can cause pedestrians to get injured. Injuries suffered in a car vs. pedestrian accident can have many significant impacts on a pedestrian's life.

Earlier this week, an accident occurred in New Jersey in which a pedestrian sustained injuries.

The accident happened on Wednesday. Late that morning, a pedestrian was walking in Westfield, New Jersey. Reportedly, a motor vehicle then hit the pedestrian. This occurred in the area of the intersection of Cacciola Place and Central Avenue.

The pedestrian was injured in this car vs. pedestrian accident. According to the article on the Westfield Patch's website which reported this story, the pedestrian was taken to a hospital in the area after the accident. The article did not have any details on the nature or severity of the pedestrian's injuries.

Reportedly, this car vs. pedestrian accident is still in the process of being investigated.

As this accident shows, car vs. pedestrian accidents can result in pedestrians getting hurt.

Given how harmful car vs. pedestrian accidents can be, one hopes that all motorists in New Jersey do everything they reasonably can to prevent car vs. pedestrian accidents when out on the roads. This includes making sure to be watchful for pedestrians when driving and to exercise proper care when driving in areas where pedestrians are present. It also includes following all relevant traffic laws when behind the wheel.

If motorists fail to do these things, they could be putting the safety of pedestrians at risk.
