Monroe, GA – Woman Injured in Pedestrian Crash at GA-138 & Michael Etchison Rd
Monroe, GA (September 8, 2022) – A woman was injured in a serious pedestrian accident that took place at a Monroe intersection on Wednesday, September 7, at an unidentified time.
According to police reports, the accident happened at the intersection of GA-138 and Michael Etchison Road. Police confirmed that a female pedestrian was walking in the area and possibly crossing the intersection when she was struck by a passenger vehicle in the area. The driver allegedly stopped at the scene of the accident.
Several local responders were on their way back from another accident in the area when they saw that the woman was struck by a vehicle. Responders immediately stopped at the scene. The female victim, who has not yet been formally identified, was rushed to Piedmont Walton for treatment of unknown injuries.
Due to the severity of the crash, a large portion of the intersection was blocked in the area for some time. This led to delays until the scene was officially cleared.
Georgia State Patrol officials continue their investigation into the circumstances leading up to the collision.
We offer our warmest sympathies to the woman recovering from injuries caused by this accident.
Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrian accidents are some of the most severe accidents that occur on our roads in Georgia. From the moment that a pedestrian starts navigating our roads, they always expect that drivers will be watching out for their well-being. Unfortunately, too many drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them and so pedestrian accidents still continue every year. In 2021, it was reported that 348 pedestrians were killed in Georgia accidents and many others sustained injuries. If you have been hurt in a serious pedestrian accident that was caused by another party, speaking with an attorney is in your best interests.
Nobody is ever fully prepared to face a severe pedestrian accident. However, this is the reality that many people are forced to face each year when drivers are disobeying the rules of the road. Many serious injuries stem from pedestrian accidents, including the following:
