Pedestrians Injured After Driver Allegedly Suffers Medical Issue

Car Accidents
December 11, 2017

For many New Jersey drivers, having a vehicle to get from one place to another is a matter of convenience. Because it is a commonality for many people, it can be easy for some to forget that driving a vehicle is a privilege that should be carefully enjoyed to stay safe and protect others safety as well. However, there are times when unforeseen events can present risks to everyone, despite how attentive and experienced a driver may be.

This was the case in a recent car accident that happened in lower Manhattan, New York. A man was behind the wheel of a sedan when he seemingly lost control and crashed into an SUV. After the initial impact, he kept going and plowed into a group of people that were on a sidewalk. Several pedestrians were hit and sustained a range of injuries although none of them were found to be life-threatening. As investigators worked to piece together the scene, witnesses reported that the driver seemed to make no effort to prevent the collision. When the man was being interviewed by detectives, he complained of pain in his chest ultimately leading authorities to believe the accident could be linked to a medical condition the man had suffered. All of the injured were taken to local hospitals to be treated for their injuries. The driver is not expected to be charged.

If someone has been injured in a car accident, they may be interested in working with an attorney throughout the process of establishing a claim. Doing so can provide direction from an experienced professional to allow the injured persons to focus on their recovery and healing.
