Jacksonville pedestrian accident kills 1, injures 2

Posted on November 12th, 2012 No Comments

On Saturday night, a Jacksonville pedestrian was killed in a collision with a motorcycle. The 44-year-old man was trying to cross 103rd Street around 7:30 p.m. when he was struck by a motorcyclist on a Harley-Davidson. When paramedics arrived at the scene, they pronounced the man dead near Norde Drive West.

The motorcyclist, 46, had a passenger with him at the time of the fatal collision. The47-year-old passenger, and the motorcyclist, both from Jacksonville, were said to be wearing helmets at the time of the crash. The impact of the accident caused them to become airborne, and they both sustained serious injuries. They were transported to Orange Park Medical Center to be treated.

Pedestrian accidents can cause individuals to sustain life-ending injuries. These accidents tend to favor people behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, due to the sheer size of the car in comparison with the pedestrian. Reckless drivers can leave pedestrians with serious injuries, and as a result they should be held responsible for their actions.

If you were hit by a motor vehicle or motorcycle as a pedestrian, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering. Please contact the pedestrian accident lawyers of the Law Offices of Donald Guthrie by calling 904-296-1088 today.
