In Pittsburgh, news reports note that a taxi hit two pedestrians last month. One of the pedestrians unfortunately passed away as a result. According to reports of the accident, the taxi initially collided with another car before going onto the curb. It then hit the walkers as they were crossing the street. The accident caused a section of the city to close and many emergency responders quickly arrived at the scene. Sadly, this is a situation which likely could have been avoided if drivers had taken more care in the city steets.
Pedestrian accidents are frightening and occur without warning. Additionally, the consequences of pedestrian accidents can also be emotionally and physically damaging.
