There are many contributing factors in many auto-pedestrian accidents; driver inattention being the most common cause.
A 38-year-old Clearwater, Florida man has been charged with two counts of fleeing the scene of a crash involving bodily harm after he struck two pedestrians on a sidewalk.
According to police, a 2003 Honda Civic driven by the man, passed through an intersection and veered off the road, striking the pedestrians. When the driver failed to stop, a witness on a motorcycle followed him to a convenient store, called 911, and detained the man until police arrived. The two pedestrians were transported to an area hospital with serious injuries.
