4 family members hit by car, 2 in critical condition

Walking from one place to another may seem to be a low-risk activity, but when people and vehicles share the roadway, the risk of danger and harm can actually be quite high. Car accidents involving pedestrians can result in serious injury or death, and victims who survive may have to deal with long-term pain and suffering.

A family is trying to recover from a car-pedestrian accident on Feb. 11. The collision happened in Milford, Connecticut, when police say the four were walking on the shoulder of Bridgeport Avenue near Cowles Street. Two family members sustained severe trauma, one was not injured and another sustained only minor injuries. The injured parties were taken to a local hospital, where two of them are still reportedly in critical condition.

It is alleged that the sidewalk in the area was not clear and that the family was walking on the shoulder. Authorities say the accident was not a hit and run, but they have not given a cause or said if any charges are pending. They have issued a warning for pedestrians to walk against the flow of traffic and stay as close to the edge of the road as possible. But this does not excuse a driver who was not driving within the proper traffic lanes.

Car accident victims may be saddled with medical and other bills and have money issues because they are unable to work and face lengthy recovery periods. Victims need to know if an accident was caused by a negligent, impaired or distracted driver.
