Pedestrian Hit by Debris when Pickup Crashes into Bus Shelter
Date: October 7, 2015
Location: Southeast 26th and Powell Boulevard
Wednesday morning a pedestrian was injured when a driver crashed into a bus stop shelter at Southeast 26th and Powell Boulevard.
The crash occurred near Cleveland High School and Powell City Park. The crash threw debris over 10 feet and some of it struck a pedestrian nearby.
The vehicle drove away after the crash.
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.
If you are interested in discussing whether you might have a pedestrian accident, call a Portland pedestrian accident attorney for help and a free consultation.
