2 pedestrian accidents result in injuries and a fatality

A pair of pedestrian accidents happened in Pensacola, Florida, leaving one person injured and taking another person's life. They both happened on the same road -- Cervantes Street -- and they took place in the span of a few hours.

The first accident took place at 2:45 in the afternoon, on a Friday. A woman was near the intersection of 14th Avenue and Cervantes when she was hurt.

According to the police officer who responded, she was heading north on 14th Avenue. She was hit by a 2006 Chevy Malibu. That woman, who is 46 years old, did suffer significant injuries, but police were quick to note that she was in stable condition, so they don't appear to be life-threatening.

Reports indicate that she was attempting to cross Cervantes and continue down 14th, but it looks like she was not in the crosswalk. No other details about the accident, including other contributing causes, were given.

The second accident happened at about eight that evening, when a woman was trying to cross the street. She allegedly walked out in front of a car and was hit. At this time, the police have not filed any charges in that case.

The road can be a very dangerous place for pedestrians. Even something as simple as going for an afternoon walk can turn deadly or leave people with life-changing injuries. When those injuries are caused by a negligent driver, they need to know their rights to compensation.

One key thing to remember is that people do not have to be convicted in criminal court to be liable in civil court. Even when laws aren't directly broken, negligence may still play a role.
