A pedestrian was hit by an out of control car on Tuesday night while she was waiting for a bus at the bus stop in Glendale. The driver was suspected to be distracted. Speed and alcohol were not believed to be a factor. The woman, 19, was lucky and even though she was sent to the hospital and has minor injuries, is expected to be fine. The driver is lucky as well, since this type of accident could have easily caused serious injuries or even death to the pedestrian and anyone else standing at the bus stop. The injuries, while minor, could have long lasting effects and could negatively affect her life. Pain and suffering could appear days or even weeks after the incident. The complexity of injuries from a car-pedestrian accident requires a highly knowledgeable Phoenix personal injury lawyer.
