Call for witnesses in Middletown pedestrian accident

March 20, 2013

A pedestrian at the intersection of Highway 36 and Thomson Avenue in Leonardo was rushed to the hospital on Monday evening with life-threatening injuries. Those injuries were caused by an auto-pedestrian collision that occurred at approximately 10:30 p.m.

The injured pedestrian received treatment at the Jersey Shore Trauma Center. Doctors reported that her condition remained serious throughout the night and into Tuesday morning.

Police spoke with the driver of the vehicle. At the time of the report, police had not filed any charges against the woman. However, the investigation continues as they attempt to gather more evidence about what caused the accident and whether charges should be filed.

After a pedestrian accident such as this one, police will take statements from the driver and the victim as soon as possible. In many serious situations such as this one, the victim may not be able to immediately explain what happened due to injuries suffered in the crash. No one is going to rely on a single witness statement in an accident involving an injury, especially when the only account is from the driver of the car.

The Middletown Police Department is no exception. They have put out a call to possible witnesses to the auto-pedestrian collision in the hopes that more information could be obtained. A police department will have the resources necessary to publish information about a crash so that witnesses can be found, but a personal injury attorney should be conduction a parallel investigation of their own.

Police will search for evidence in relation to traffic violations and criminal charges, but they won’t have a focus on whether or not a driver could be liable in a civil suit for damages. This is an entirely different type of claim, and one that is important for the victim.
