Richmond, VA Woman Seriously Injured While Crossing Street in Norfolk
This report from WVEC Television tells Brooks' story:
Brooks told the station that she waited for the walk signal before stepping into the street near the Walmart at Southern Shopping Center. That would mean the driver who struck her had a red light that the person either ignored or spotted too late to stop at a safe distance from the intersection. The facts of the matter remain unclear, however, because the at-fault driver did not identify him- or herself to Brooks or the other motorists who rendered assistance after the accident.
Whoever crashed into Brooks left the scene without taking responsibility for causing her injuries. In other words, this was a hit-and-run pedestrian accident that left a woman badly hurt and temporarily unable to walk or even sit without experiencing pain and muscle spasms.
Norfolk police are asking anyone with information about the wreck to call 1-888-LOCK-U-UP and share details that could help them track down the at-fault driver.
Attorneys with our Virginia Beach, VA-based personal injury law firm have helped numerous pedestrian accident victims in Norfolk receive compensation from the people who hit and hurt them. We wish Brooks a speedy and full recover and hope that the driver responsible for her suffering is identified and held to account.
