Bay Shore, NY (November 17, 2018) – Police reported that an 81-year-old pedestrian was struck and killed in a fatal accident in Bay Shore this past week. Police responded to the scene and found that the pedestrian was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The pedestrian has been identified as 81-year-old Gloria Prietto, who had been walking on the south service road of the Sunrise Highway around the area of Redmond Avenue at the time. She was struck by a dump truck.
The truck driver stayed at the scene of the accident to cooperate with police and was not charged. Police continue to investigate the accident at this time.
Far too often, pedestrian accidents lead to serious results for those involved. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have very few protections from harm when they are up against large motor vehicles. If you have lost a loved one in a serious pedestrian accident, you might wonder what options you have. We would like to extend our sincere condolences to the friends and family of Gloria Prietto at this time, as we understand how difficult it is to face the reality that a loved one is gone due to the reckless actions of others.
When a loved one loses their life in an accident, the family then become the parties responsible for bringing a claim for damages.
