On Wednesday morning, a woman was fatally struck while trying to cross Bristol Pike in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. Around 5:43 am, the pedestrian accident took place, and occurred during the snowfall. Several vehicles struck the Philadelphia woman before she succumbed to her fatal injuries.
Although pedestrians are protected by state traffic laws, motorists may be unaware of the regulations in place or may disregard or be oblivious to pedestrians when they are walking along the street. During a snowstorm or other inclement weather, the low visibility and icy conditions may increase the likelihood of not only car accidents but pedestrian crashes as well. Individuals who are struck by a car may incur a range of personal injuries or even fatalities in this type of collision.
