One day after an arraignment hearing for charges of operating a vehicle under the influence and causing bodily injury, a female driver was back in court to answer to a charge of vehicular homicide. The charge stemmed from a Massachusetts pedestrian accident that injured a woman, her daughter and another child. The driver who allegedly struck the three pedestrians has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Massachusetts police were kept occupied on the night before Thanksgiving. There were three different accidents in a short period of time where each victim was hit by a car. One of the victims died. While the majority of Boston families were celebrating the holiday together, three families were left to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.
Another victim has succumbed to injuries suffered in a hit-and-run accident in the same Massachusetts community. The young woman was struck on a Wednesday evening and died just a few days later. This was the seventh recorded fatality from a pedestrian accident in the city of Brockton this year.
Pedestrian versus car accidents often have a poor outcome for the person on foot. Recently, a 60-year-old man suffered serious injury after he was hit by a car. Massachusetts police reported that he was transported for possibly life-threatening injuries.
Millions of people have dreams of things they want to accomplish. Some succeed without any trouble and others never see their dream realized. There are some who persevere against challenging obstacles and see their dreams to fruition. One dad who suffered a devastating spinal cord injury not only succeeded, but he inspired his son as well. Victims of back injuries everywhere, including Massachusetts, may also be encouraged by the man's feats.
