Similar to many accidents involving vehicles, the cause of pedestrian accidents can often be difficult to determine. City dwellers are especially more aware of this problem, as the risk of travelling by sidewalks near roads increases in heavily congested areas. And like most states, Virginia sees pedestrian-related wrecks happen daily. Those who believe their situation has been handled unjustly may decide to take further legal action.
A Virginia baby is dead after a teenage boy lost control of his vehicle and ran into a group of pedestrians on August 31. The fatal car accident happened in Rockingham County near Harrisonburg. A 16-year-old driver of an SUV was driving through the Belmont subdivision early that Friday morning; he somehow veered off the roadway and plowed into a small crowd of people -- most of them children -- standing nearby.
