Lee University pedestrians injured in car accident
Posted By Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge || Sep 2, 2011
A current Lee University student and a recent graduate were recently hospitalized when a van hit them as they walked on campus. The pedestrian accident has also left many students and university officials concerned about campus safety. The Lee University Vice President of Administration told WRCB 3 that he will be working with city officials to brainstorm improving student safety.
A pedestrian accident can cause serious injury or even death. The impact of a collision, even if the car is moving slowly, poses a grave risk to pedestrians. It is important that motorists always follow the posted speed limit, especially in heavily populated areas. If you are out walking and hit by a car, however, you should immediately seek medical attention. You may also want to speak with a qualified personal injury attorney. An attorney can explain what legal options you have in the aftermath of a pedestrian accident.
The accident happened as the student and graduate were crossing Parker Street late on a weekend night. A witness told WRCB 3 that he heard the collision and then saw several police cars drive by.
The recent graduate, an international student from Nepal, suffered a broken pelvis and a head injury. His aunt and uncle are expected to come from Washington, D.C., to stay with him while he heals. The student also suffered a head injury and remains hospitalized. Both victims are expected to recover.
