The Waldorf Maryland pedestrian accident lawyers at Alpert Schreyer understand that pedestrians suffer the most serious life-threatening injuries and often lose their lives when they are struck by motor vehicles. Obeying traffic signals, crossing at cross walks, taking care to look both ways, sometimes nothing can prevent tragic accidents involving motor vehicles.
In this case, the accident occurred on southbound Route 301 when the pedestrian attempted to cross the highway from the center median. A 2012 Ford Focus struck the pedestrian while he was still crossing the highway in lane three. The driver of the Ford Focus did not flee the scene but stopped to render aid and remained at the scene of the accident. The pedestrian killed was a male 27 years of age and a Waldorf resident.
He was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident and his body was taken to the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office. Police are continuing their investigation of this incident.
