Auto-Pedestrian Accident Left One Injured in Vidor

Vidor, TX (11/18/2019) – A man is now hospitalized after being hit by a vehicle on IH-10 Eastbound Service Road early Saturday morning.

The incident happened at 7:47 a.m., according to Police Chief Rod Carroll, when a man walking in the vicinity of the Service Road was hit by a vehicle driving in the outside lane.

The pedestrian was transported to CHRISTUS Hospital St. Elizabeth for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Chief Carroll reported there may be a fractured leg. 

Per the driver, he couldn’t see the pedestrian due to the morning sun. The pedestrian was also not facing traffic as he was walking. 

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

Pedestrians are at a disadvantage when it comes to personal safety on the streets of Houston. Motorists frequently fail to see pedestrians on or alongside busy roads, such as the accident above, and it only takes a second for a serious accident to occur. These accidents can result in thousands in medical expenses, lost wages, and even pain and suffering.
