Car-pedestrian accident kills young boy

Pedestrian-car accidents usually end in tragedy and that was the case for a family of a young boy, who was hit by a car while crossing an intersection in Miami, Florida, with his mother and brother.

The family was just about to the other side of the street, when they were struck by the vehicle. The family was then taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries and that's where the younger son, age 7, died.

According to witnesses at the scene, it looked like the family had just come from a local grocery store when they were hit. Witnesses also thought the family was hit by two cars, however, based on the evidence that the police had gathered, and more witness statements, it appeared that only one vehicle was involved in the accident. The police report also stated that the three were not crossing at a crosswalk and that this may have contributed to the crash.

Immediately after the crash, people nearby rushed in to help. They were trying to prevent other vehicles from hitting the victims and were directing traffic around the accident scene until police arrived.

Car-pedestrian accidents like this case happen every day and have life altering consequences. The physical, emotional and financial strain on the individual can be overwhelming. An experienced attorney specializing in personal injury can help you figure out your options. An accident like this could put you into the position of having large medical bills, insurance issues and lost wages. An attorney can provide you with an approach that fits your situation and benefits you most.

At this time, the driver, 25, has not been charged with a crime and the two passengers in his car were not injured.
