Carnegie, PA (June 23, 2020) – On Saturday afternoon, police confirmed that four victims were injured in a Carnegie pedestrian accident.
According to Allegheny County Police, three pedestrians were struck by a passenger vehicle around 4:30 p.m.
The operator of a vehicle, a 47-year-old woman, struck a 37-year-old woman, a 61-year-old man, and a 70-year-old man.
The individuals who were hit were alongside the roadway because the 37-year-old woman’s vehicle had broken down. Her father and a friend were helping her with the battery when the vehicle struck them.
Four victims were hospitalized in critical condition.
It is not known if there will be charges due to the accident. Police continue their investigation into the accident.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
In one recent year in the U.S., it was reported that approximately 130,000 pedestrian accidents took place, with a percentage of these occurring in Pennsylvania. Because of the fact that pedestrians have few protections from harm against larger vehicles, these accidents are capable of causing serious harm to those involved.
