Pedestrians Struck by Vehicle in Roane County Parking Lot
Roane County, TN (April 11, 2021) Emergency workers in Roane County went to Walmart on the afternoon of April 11th after receiving reports that a vehicle struck two pedestrians in a parking lot. One of the injured pedestrians was soon after transported to Methodist Medical Center while the other pedestrian received care from emergency medical workers. It remains uncertain if charges were filed against the driver.
Data shows that 5,977 pedestrians were killed in car crashes in 2017 and that an estimated 137,000 pedestrians were treated in emergency rooms for non-deadly injuries that occurred that year. As a pedestrian, it’s up to you to take every step possible to reduce your risks of ending up in an accident. Remember to only walk at designated crosswalks or intersections. Trying to cross the road anywhere else is much more dangerous. Also, do whatever you can as a pedestrian to avoid potential distractions. This means do not use a smartphone or engage in any other activity that would distract your attention from the surroundings.
