Thursday evening a Colorado man was struck by a car while crossing Southeast Third Street near Cleveland Avenue in Bend.
John Weiss, 22, of Centennial, Colorado, was seriously injured and taken to the hospital. Weiss was unconscious at the scene.
The car driven by Russ Pennavaria, 54, of Bend, was heading south on Third Street when he hit Weiss, who was crossing the road where there was no crosswalk.
We wish John Weiss a full and speedy recovery.
In a pedestrian v. car accident, the pedestrian is often seriously injured. In cases where the driver is at fault, the driver’s auto insurance will ultimately compensate the injury victim.
Your own Personal Injury Protection (PIP through your own auto insurance) still applies in this type of case, so use your own auto insurance to pay medical bills until you settle your claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance.
If you don’t have an auto insurance policy, then your health insurance will cover your medical bills. If you don’t have auto or health insurance, the at-fault driver’s PIP should cover your medical bills.
