Pedestrians often think they have nothing to worry about when it comes to accidents because they’re not driving a vehicle or riding. However, strange accidents happen all the time, and they do occasionally involve pedestrians getting hurt, or even killed.
One such accident is an excellent example of this, and although no pedestrians were involved, it’s possible that this crash could have resulted in many more lives lost. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently reported about an accident that occurred near St. Louis in Creve Coeur, where a male driver lost control of his car.
He crashed into a tree at the intersection of Olive Boulevard and Deaver Avenue. The man was only 20 years old, and fortunately there was no one else in the vehicle with him at the time. A member of the Missouri State Police pronounced him dead at the scene.
There’s no telling what caused him to lose control of his vehicle, and the article was not clear about the circumstances. However, this is a timely reminder that your St. Louis pedestrian accident attorney asks you to be careful when you’re walking along St. Louis roadways. Single car accidents do happen, and you don’t want to be in the path when they do.
If you are injured in an accident as a pedestrian, please know that you need legal representation right away. Contact your St. Louis pedestrian accident attorney for immediate assistance.
