Accident leaves Wisconsin pedestrian in critical condition

Drivers in Lacrosse, Wisconsin need to be aware and on the lookout for pedestrians. In many instances, pedestrians may have the right of way when walking across the street in a crosswalk. Of course, pedestrians need to be smart about their own safety too; just because they may have the right of way does not mean that it is safe or prudent to dart out in front of an approaching car without any warning.

This may be the case for a pedestrian accident that occurred recently in Superior, Wisconsin. Two people who witnessed the accident told authorities that the pedestrian did not seem to even look up before stepping into the roadway.

The accident happened around 8:40 p.m. near the base of the Blatnik Bridge. It was dark, and a light rain was falling, but there were streetlights in the area. The driver of the car that hit the woman who is believed to be 50 years old, said that he was going north toward the bridge when the woman stepped in front of his car. He evidently did not have time to stop before crashing into her. Authorities said the driver did not show any signs of impairment and a preliminary breath test came up negative. The woman was taken to the hospital by ambulance where she was listed in critical condition.

Although it is unclear who was at fault for this accident, both parties involved may wish to consult with an attorney. Doing so can ensure that their interest are protected and that they receive the compensation to which they may be entitled.
