Elmont, NY (February 24, 2019) – Pedestrian accidents are more likely to lead to fatal results than any other type of accident due to the fact that pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roadways.
On Saturday night, police reported that two pedestrian accidents within 90 minutes of one another took the lives of both pedestrians involved. The second happened around 10:00 p.m. when the pedestrian was crossing Linden Boulevard.
Police have since identified the pedestrian as Terrence Reid, who was struck by another vehicle when he was crossing the street. The driver who struck him remained at the scene to cooperate with police.
No charges have since been filed and the accident remains under investigation.
Pedestrian accidents can be one of the scariest times to endure, leaving you feeling as if you have few options for recovery. At this time, we would like to take a moment to extend our condolences to the family of Terrence Reid, as well as the loved ones of the victim who lost their life just before Reid, and any others who have suffered such severe losses at the hands of another party.
