One Injured in Car Accident on Oliver Avenue in Aurora, Illinois

AURORA, IL — One man was taken to the hospital after a pedestrian accident that happened in Aurora, Illinois on Thursday, May 1st, 2014, according to a news report from The Beacon News.

Authorities believe that an as-of-yet unidentified pedestrian was hurt when they were struck by a vehicle when they were walking along or trying to cross the intersection of Oliver and Arnold Avenue around 6:30 Thursday night.

Scene of the Accident



The pedestrian was taken by EMS personnel to a nearby hospital where an update on their condition was immediately unavailable.

The investigation into the accident is currently ongoing.


Based on what I’m reading here, there is probably not a whole lot the pedestrian can do in his situation, unless the driver saw him a long way off before the accident. As a driver, when a pedestrian is spotted in the road outside of a marked crosswalk, the driver has an obligation to avoid hitting them. Right-of-way or not, this does not entitle you to hit a pedestrian with your car. Additionally, if the driver was turning off a stop and hit the victim, the driver may have failed to check to see if his path was clear before turning, putting them at least partially to blame for the accident

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
