According to a report from KMBC News 9, a pedestrian sustained serious injuries in a collision in Kansas City. The pedestrian—an unidentified juvenile—was struck by a semi-truck that did not stop at the scene. Here, our Kansas City pedestrian accident attorney explains what we know about this crash and highlights the extreme risk that large commercial trucks pose to pedestrians.
Semi-Truck Hit Juvenile Pedestrian in Kansas City, Did Not Stop at Scene of Crash
In a truly shocking and unfortunate event, a minor pedestrian who was navigating the construction that currently covers the southbound lanes I-29, was struck by a semi-truck. The crash happened shortly beyond the overbridge at NW 72nd Street, Kansas City, Missouri. The victim is currently in critical condition at a Kansas City area emergency room. Alarmingly, the semi-truck did not stop at the scene of the crash in violation of Missouri law. The hit-and-run pedestrian crash is still under a more comprehensive investigation by local law enforcement.
Large Commercial Truck Pose a Heightened Safety Risk to Pedestrians
The extreme size, towering height, and extraordinary power of large commercial trucks mean that they pose a serious safety hazard to pedestrians. It is imperative that semi-trucks are operated in the safest possible manner. For pedestrians, especially the young and elderly, who are often less able to swiftly evade danger, the magnitude of this threat is exacerbated. A trucker, trucking company, and any other negligent party can be held legally liable for a pedestrian crash in Kansas City. All of these cases must be comprehensively investigated by an experienced attorney.
Note: A personal injury claim can be filed on behalf of a minor pedestrian. In general, their parents or guardians should initiate the claim. A Kansas City personal injury lawyer with experience handling child injury cases can help you and your family navigate this type of claim.
