Hurricane, UT (April 16, 2021) – Officers from the Hurricane Police Department were called to the scene when a driver ran a red light and crashed into two women in a crosswalk on Saturday, April 10th.
Reports show that the incident took place at the intersection of State Street and 1150 West at about 10:00 p.m. when the two pedestrians, who were crossing legally, were struck by a Chevrolet Malibu that had run a red light and then fled the area.
Sources said that both women were lucky to be alive, having sustained critical injuries during the impact.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
If you have suffered an injury during a pedestrian accident in Utah, you will most likely receive a call from the insurance carrier of the driver involved in your accident, wanting to get a recorded statement from you. You are not obligated to indulge them, especially if you have not yet spoken with a personal injury attorney.
It is always a smart move to speak with an attorney prior to giving any sort of statement to anyone. This is because insurance companies actually teach their adjusters to ask certain questions worded in such a way as to bring down the value of your claim as much as possible. An experienced Utah pedestrian accident attorney can stop these adjusters from taking advantage of you.
When victims are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of other drivers, it is crucial that they seek legal guidance from a skilled and knowledgeable pedestrian accident attorney in Salt Lake City as soon as possible.
When victims are injured during car accidents through no fault of their own, they are often able to obtain compensation from wrongdoers to alleviate the financial costs they face for medical treatment, lost wages, property repairs, and a variety of other economic and non-economic damages.
