Jersey City police chase ends in deadly pedestrian accident

Going for a walk along New Jersey city streets can be very risky these days. Accidents involving pedestrians are happening more and more as populations increase across the state. Although walking is a popular form of recreation for New Jersey citizens, many also use walking as a main source of transportation. To avoid a pedestrian accident, those traveling on foot should always be aware of their surroundings and be prepared for anything they may experience. 

Recently in Jersey City, a pedestrian was struck and killed by an SUV involved in a police chase. Reports say the driver of the SUV was being pursued by police for running traffic signals and speeding. According to police, the driver of the SUV refused to stop and fled.

During the chase, police say the SUV collided with another vehicle, jumped a curb and crashed into a bus stop, striking a pedestrian on the sidewalk. Tragically, the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene. Friends say the man was deaf and was making his way home from work at the time of the accident. The driver of the SUV was arrested and could be facing very serious charges.

Pedestrians and vehicles are in such close proximity in crowded New Jersey cities that accidents become almost inevitable. Unfortunately, any pedestrian accident is more likely to have fatal consequences. Families that have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident may be able to take legal action. A successful lawsuit could result in financial relief to help families cover medical bills and end-of-life expenses.
