Pedestrian Struck

pedestrian struck crossing streetPedestrian Struck and Killed in Cumberland County Accident.

Fox 43 News is reporting that an 84-year old woman was crossing St. John’s Church Road in Hampden Township, Cumberland County when she was struck by a car. The pedestrian struck was wearing dark clothing and crossing the street in a poorly lit area. The accident occurred around 7:30pm Sunday night.

As a pedestrian, walking along the road at night can be dangerous. If you must walk, wear light clothing or reflective buttons. Try to stay in well-lit areas and only cross the street at well marked crosswalks or traffic lights. As a driver, it is important that you are even more alert at night. Slow down and put away your phone. Speeding and distracted driving is dangerous when it is easy to see your surroundings, and even more so at night.

At 70yrs. of age, I have never been in a car accident, nor have I ever had a moving violation! So, needless to say, that the trauma of being involved in an accident that I did not cause, where my car, (which was only 6mos. old) was totaled!) and I received 2 broken bones in my left ankle that warrented surgery…was nothing short of devastating! It’s been 9mos. and I’m still healing! But while I was in the ER, the only injury attorney’s name and number that came to my mind was Freeburn and the 7’s! Well, in came Ryan McDaniels, and ever since that initial encounter at my home, I was thoroughly convinced that the Lord had orchestrated it! This young man’s demeanor, personality, and integrity was awesome! He kept me well informed and I trusted him emphatically! Not only him, but everyone in their office, showed me the utmost respect and courtesies! I would, without any reservations, refer anyone who asked me, to this firm! They made for me a wonderful experience from the most devastatingly, traumatic situation I’ve ever had! Definitely 2 thumbs up!
