Anaheim: Pedestrian in Critical Condition after Hit-and-Run Accident
Posted on Mar 01, 2011
A pedestrian remains in critical condition after she was struck early last Saturday morning. The hit-and-run accident occurred in the north crosswalk of Harbor Boulevard at Katella Avenue. The driver of the vehicle that hit the woman stopped shortly before fleeing the scene, leaving the woman to suffer from life threatening injuries. Police are looking for a mid-‘90s to mid ‘00s white Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, or Maxima. They believe the driver is a male in his mid-40s. Anyone with information about the driver’s whereabouts or this accident is asked to call the Anaheim police traffic investigators at 714-765-1900, explains an Orange County injury lawyer.
The majority of the 59,000 pedestrian accidents that resulted in injuries in 2009 occurred at intersections and between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., followed by 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA. That year, traffic accidents claimed the lives of 4,092 pedestrians.
Everyone at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the pedestrian injured in Anaheim last Saturday a full recovery.
The Orange County Register originally reported this pedestrian accident.
