Woman Hit by Semi-Truck, Injured
SAN BERNARDINO (July 18, 2017) – A pedestrian was injured after being hit and dragged by a truck in the area of North Del Rosa Avenue and East Date Street Tuesday afternoon, according to The Sun.
As per the article, the semi-truck was stopped at the limit line of an intersection when the light turned green. The operator of the big rig then continued driving, reportedly failing to notice a woman who was crossing the road.
Police said the truck hit and pinned the woman underneath one of its wheels.
Paramedics responded to the scene shortly after 2:12 p.m. and found the victim dragged for about 50 feet. The patient was conscious as she was being transported to a local trauma center for treatment.
The woman reportedly sustained minor abrasions upon impact. Her name was not disclosed.
Meanwhile, the San Bernardino Police Department prompted closure at the area and is handling the investigation.
Based on this news report, it remains unclear if the driver will be held liable for hitting the woman. There are still several questions at this time—was the truck driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs during the accident? Did distracted driving play a role? Was the woman in a crosswalk at the time of the collision? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred in this pedestrian accident.
