Modesto Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrian accidents are always serious in nature, but they become even more severe when they involve children and parties who are supposed to look out for their well-being on the roadways. Drivers are always supposed to take actions to protect those on the roads, especially exercising their duty of care when they know that children are in the area.
We wish to extend our condolences to the 6-year-old child who was seriously injured in this accident and we hope that she has a speedy recover.
