Massachusetts pedestrian accident kills 3-year-old

A tragic accident has left police searching for the motor vehicle involved, according to local sources. Massachusetts police investigating the pedestrian accident are calling it a hit-and-run since the driver did not stop to render aid. The accident resulted in the death of a 3-year-old child in Milford. 

Fatal pedestrian accident turns into hit and run

During the early evening hours, Massachusetts roadways are filled with cars whose drivers are traveling home from work or out running last minute errands. At the same time, pedestrians are walking alongside these roads and even crossing the roadways. When the pedestrian crosses at the appropriate intersection, he or she must walk under the assumption that drivers will respect their right to cross and that a pedestrian accident will not occur.

It seemed like a good idea at the time; a beautiful spring day is the perfect time to go for a walk with a loved one. Walking along a street is a daily activity for many Massachusetts families.

The idea of a hospital stay is typically not at the top of anyone's "to do" list. However, many Massachusetts residents end up spending at least several nights in a hospital at one time or another. While there, patients assume that they will receive proper care and that medical procedures will be completed in the proper manner. Unfortunately, as evidenced in a recent jury verdict in another state, medical mistakes can cause devastating results -- including brain injury.

A pedestrian accident can happen in Massachusetts

Massachusetts police seek driver in fatal pedestrian accident

Every single driver in Massachusetts has a responsibility to those with whom they come into contact while operating a motor vehicle. Part of this responsibility involves ensuring that any negligent actions do not cause harm to someone else. If harm is caused, the law requires that the driver remain on the scene to provide aid, even if that aid is only to call emergency responders to the scene. Police say that the driver of a car involved in a recent pedestrian accident did not stay at the scene.
