Haines City, FL (August 29, 2022) – A mom and her teenage daughter were hospitalized after they were struck by a driver as they were leaving church on Thursday, August 25th.
According to the Haines City Police Department, the mother and her 15-year-old daughter had just left the Redeemed Church of God in Christ at about 9:30 p.m. As they were crossing Eighth Street North to get to the parking lot, they were hit by a car.
Due to injuries received during the impact, the mother was taken by ambulance to Osceola Regional Hospital. Her daughter was transferred to the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando. Both sustained trauma to their lower body and are currently listed in stable condition.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Pedestrian Injuries in Florida
Accidents that involve individuals on foot are likely to result in significant injuries, deaths, and property damage. Pedestrians have no protection from the impact of a motor vehicle, so even accidents that occur at comparatively slow speeds can be serious, resulting in catastrophic injuries, profound mental traumas, and considerable economic losses.
The number of pedestrian accidents around the country is rising. In 2010, there were 4,280 pedestrian deaths in the US, down from 5,585 in 1995. That is a decrease of 23%. Similar to this, the number of pedestrian injuries decreased by 17% from 84,000 in 1995 to 70,000 in 2010.
