Alaska man injured in early morning pedestrian accident

Any time people walk near a street or in a parking lot, they run the risk of being hit by a moving vehicle. The chances of being a victim in a pedestrian accident increase after dark, especially if non-reflective clothing is worn. State troopers report an Alaska man was injured in a recent hit-and-run pedestrian accident.

Just before dawn, troopers received a 911 call reporting a man lying by the side of the road in a ditch. When they arrived at the scene, they determined the man was seriously injured and transported him to a local medical facility. He is expected to fully recover from the injuries he received.

Although many details are still unknown, investigation by the troopers established that the man had been hit from behind after he had left the house of a friend. He was wearing dark clothing and was not easily seen in the night time hours. The driver left the scene, but authorities have found several leads helping to indicate the type of vehicle that hit the man. A spokesperson stated the victim has not yet been able to offer much help with details of the accident.

Even pedestrians who follow the traffic laws are not immune from some type of accident caused by an impaired or distracted driver. The victim in a pedestrian accident can choose the option of filing a lawsuit against the driver for an amount that, if awarded, will pay medical and other bills accumulated as a result of the accident. A skilled professional is available to any Alaska resident who has suffered because of the negligence of another person.
