Child in critical condition after pedestrian accident in Iowa

When your child has to walk to a school bus stop or cross a road to get to school, you might worry that an accident could happen. When drivers are cautious and aware of their surroundings, they help prevent accidents. When they aren't, it's far too easy for a pedestrian to get hit, even at an intersection.

An Oct. 27 report has stated that the police have identified the child who was hit by a car in Des Moines, Iowa. A 12-year-old boy had been hit by a car while he was crossing the street at around 7:00 a.m. He was crossing at the intersection located at Davis Avenue and SW 9th Street when a car approached and collided with him.

The child suffered serious injuries when he was struck by the car, so he was rushed to Iowa Methodist Medical Center in critical condition as soon as the emergency medical team arrived. Police reported that they had identified the woman who struck the child, but they did not say if she remained at the scene initially.

The investigation has shown that the child was struck by a southbound vehicle that was operated by the 25-year-old woman. He was the only person injured in the collision, and police have not said if the woman was speeding or if other factors were involved in the crash.

In cases like this one, it's vital for those injured to seek the medical care they need. When the police report is finalized, the victim and his or her family can seek legal advice and move forward with a claim to seek compensation.
