Pedestrian accident near South Carolina elementary school

While December is a busy month for residents in South Carolina and elsewhere, this does not mean that we do not have the time to stop and look at our surroundings. This is especially true for motorists traveling in areas where pedestrians frequent. During the holiday season, this tends to be near stores, malls and parking lots, however, schools are a concerning area year round. This is because young children are walking during the morning and afternoon hours outside of the school when parents and buses are also transporting students to the school.

According to recent reports, a pedestrian accident took place in Greenville. Preliminary investigation reveals that the crash occurred on East North Street near Mitchell Road during the morning hours. Police have confirmed that the crash took place near Mitchell Road Elementary School.

Emergency crews arrived at the scene, and an adult was reportedly transported form the accident to the hospital. The reports did not indicate that a student was involve din the crash even though it occurred near an elementary school. However, reports did indicate that two vehicles appeared to be damaged at the scene.

Investigation is still ongoing and it is not clear what injuries were suffered or how severe they were. Once investigation is complete, authorities will be able to determine cause and even assign liability. Those harmed in a pedestrian accident have rights and options afforded to them. A personal injury action not only holds a negligent driver accountable but also helps with the recovery of compensation. A monetary award could be used to address medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wage and other related damages.
