Several Teen Pedestrians Injured After Car Hits Them in Montgomery CountyOctober 9, 2018
A car struck several teen pedestrians, leaving them with various injuries in Aspen Hill, Maryland. On Tuesday morning, around 7 am, the pedestrian accident occurred at Wendy Lane and Georgia Avenue when a white sedan hit a blue car, and then struck seven teen pedestrians who were waiting for their school bus. Four of the students went to the hospital for medical treatment including one who sustained serious injuries. The 21-year-old driver of the white sedan was transported to the hospital as well while the 25-year-old driver of the blue car escaped the accident unscathed.
Despite the implementation of safety initiatives such as Street Smart and Vision Zero, Montgomery County witnessed a disturbing amount of pedestrian fatalities in recent months. Drivers may fail to use caution when driving amid pedestrians or engage in distracted driving or other reckless driving practices that disrupt their ability to maneuver their vehicles in a safe manner. Pedestrians who may be walking, jogging, or even sitting near the road may be in danger of becoming injured in a pedestrian crash.
