Due to a lack of protective barriers, pedestrians are much more likely to be seriously injured in collisions with vehicles, rather than motorists. The Boston Pedestrian Accident Lawyers with Jason Stone Injury Lawyers explain that such a collision was responsible for leaving a 68-year-old Chinatown resident seriously injured.
According to a story released by WHDH 7 News, the incident occurred this past Sunday evening, near the JFK T Stop, located near the intersection of Mount Vernon Street and William Morrissey Boulevard. Reports indicate a 38-year-old motorist was operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol when she began to approach the intersection. As she began to pass through the crossing, she struck the victim with her vehicle before swerving and also striking a guardrail. The motorist then fled the scene without offering assistance to the victim.
The pedestrian was rushed to a local hospital in order to receive further treatment. Meanwhile, the motorist responsible for the crash returned to the scene of the accident. She was subsequently charged with a second offense operating under the influence, as well as charges related to fleeing the scene.
Jason Stone and his team of Boston Personal Injury Lawyers recognize how difficult recuperating from injuries sustained in an accident can be. That is why the firm would like to wish the victim of this latest accident a full and speedy recovery.
