Pedestrian in Forsyth County, NC Seriously Injured After Being Hit By Car

Comments (0)

What Happened:

All lanes of U.S. 421 in Forsyth County, North Carolina were closed last night due to an accident involving a pedestrian.

The accident occurred at mile marker 240 near the South Peace Haven Road exit around 8 o’clock at night.

Given how recently the accident occurred there was not yet word on the extent of the injuries suffered by those involved the collision. Authorities with Forsyth County did say that the pedestrian was injured in the crash and was taken to the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment.

The North Carolina Injury Attorney’s Perspective:

Though safety experts recommend that all pedestrians stay on sidewalks, use crosswalks and obey traffic signals when out walking along North Carolina’s roads, people in rural areas cannot always easily follow such advice. Pedestrians in rural areas often find themselves forced to share roadways with cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles and tractor-trailers in places that lack any conveniences for those on foot. When that is the case, drivers have additional obligations to watch for pedestrians, especially early in the morning or late at night when it’s dark and difficult to see.
