Louisville, KY (March 3, 2020) - A serious pedestrian accident took place near a school that involved a crossing guard who was hit by a car on Tuesday, March 2, in Louisville.
The crossing guard is employed by the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department and is assigned to serve the St. Nicholas Academy to assist students in crossing the roadway. The injured guard was identified only as a female who is said to be in serious condition. Her injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and her family at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
Pedestrian Accidents in Louisville
In towns and major cities around the county, the city leaders are working to create more and more pedestrian and bike lanes that are safe. They do this in an effort to create a safer environment to encourage more people to stop using their cars as much.
In Louisville, there are more than 120 miles of both pedestrian and bike paths and trails. In fact, the city leaders in Louisville are planning to build more in an effort to promote healthy and clean living. The popularity of these activities has sadly increased the number of pedestrian accidents. The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) has indicated that there has been an increase in pedestrian-related traffic deaths of approximately 35 percent.
Pedestrians have little to no protection when they are hit by an automobile. They are vulnerable to serious, catastrophic, and sometimes fatal injuries.
