The accident on Wilson Avenue in Loveland is being investigated by the Loveland Police Department technical investigation team, a unit that typically investigates cases involving serious injury. Alcohol may have been a factor in the accident, according to police. The names of the people involved have not been released.

Several thousand pedestrians are killed annually in traffic accidents across the United States, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA). In fact, about one out of every eight traffic fatalities reported by the NHTSA is a pedestrian. When driving a motor vehicle of any kind, it is extremely important to keep alert to the possible presence of pedestrians, so that these tragic figures can be lowered in the future.

If you or a family member have been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident, the damage can be severe. Spinal injuries and brain injuries may continue to require medical care for years after a serious injury, the bills from which can be particularly difficult to keep up with if your accident causes you to miss extended time from work.
