When pedestrians get hit by cars, their injuries are often severe. Survivors are commonly left with devastating head injuries, paralysis, chronic back pain or other lasting disabilities. They may be unable to work and are shut out of the activities they once enjoyed. Their financial burdens alone can be overwhelming. The driver, meanwhile, typically escapes unscathed.
How do these inexcusable collisions happen? Many take place in crosswalks, especially in busy downtown areas of the Twin Cities. The motorist may be turning right but looking left at approaching traffic. Speeding and alcohol are often contributing factors. Or the driver might be distracted — texting or talking on the phone, for example. By the time the driver sees you, it might be too late.
