Woman Seriously Injured after being Struck by Tow Truck in Salem

Tuesday evening, a woman was seriously injured after she was hit by a tow truck in Salem.

Rebecca Schoff, 29, was crossing Mission Street SE at Ford Street SE in an area with no crosswalks when she was struck by a Bales and Brady Tow Truck.

The tow truck, driven by Timothy Hall, 35, was heading turning left onto Mission Street from Ford Street when it hit Schoff.

Schoff was taken to Salem Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Hall was not injured and stayed at the scene.

We wish Rebecca Schoff 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.

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.
