Pedestrian hospitalized with head injuries
At approximately 7:45 a.m. Thursday, an auto accident involving a pedestrian and a vehicle occurred on Euclid Avenue in front of the parking garage by the UMC.
According to the CU Police Department, the pedestrian sustained moderate injuries to her head when she was struck by a Honda Civic and rolled up onto the hood of the car. Reports from the scene say the victim was breathing and aware but not moving.
She was removed from the scene on a stretcher and taken to Boulder Community Hospital.
The victim was crossing the street after exiting an RTD bus when the vehicle struck her. Witnesses report that the car was traveling at a speed of around 15-20 mph, within the 20 mph speed limit on Euclid Avenue.
The driver was heading eastbound on Euclid when the accident occurred. The driver’s vision might have been significantly impaired due to sun glare. If you have also been injured in a vehicular accident, a car accident lawyer may help you file a claim and ensure that your rights are protected. You may need a car wreck lawyer to handle your claim especially if you’re having difficulty getting the compensation you need for your medical treatment and the cost of car repairs.
The names of the people involved in the accident have not yet been released.
The driver and the pedestrian, both female, are students at CU.
According to CUPD spokesman Brad Wiesley, only two prior accidents in the on-campus Euclid area in the past three years have been investigated.
