Orange: Pedestrian Injured When Car Crashed into 7-Eleven
Posted on Mar 30, 2011
Yesterday at around 5:45 p.m., a woman crashed her GMC pickup truck into the front window of a 7-Eleven on Main Street in Orange. While parking the vehicle, she accidently pressed down on the gas pedal instead of the brake. Paramedics transported a female pedestrian who was injured in the accident to a nearby hospital, explains an Orange County injury attorney.
In the United States, a pedestrian died in a traffic accident every two minutes and was injured every nine minutes in 2009, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s most recent accident statistics. That year, there were a total of 4,092 pedestrian fatalities and 59,000 injuries. The city of Orange accounted for 20 of the pedestrian injuries and fatalities suffered in the state of California.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the pedestrian who was injured when the car crashed into the 7-Eleven yesterday.
