Phoenix, AZ (November 14, 2019) – A man in a motorized wheelchair who was critically injured after being hit by a car on Tuesday, November 12th at the intersection of Broadway Road and 8th Street has died.
The unidentified 63-year-old man was attempting to cross Broadway Road when he was hit by a Ford Crown Victoria headed east at about 6:15 p.m.
The driver of the car was a 25-year-old male who remained at the accident site and cooperated with police. Alcohol was determined to not be a factor in the crash.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
Pedestrians have very little physical protection from the impact of a car crash. To make matters worse, on top of the body’s impact with the car, there is usually the additional trauma of the result of the victim hitting against a curb, the asphalt, or any fixed object.
Shattered bones, traumatic brain injuries, massive internal hemorrhaging, and damage to the spinal cord are frequently occurring injuries in these types of accidents. The medical bills associated with these injuries will quickly reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
