More Pedestrian Collisions in Wake of Fatal Incident

June 23, 2017

Montgomery County Police and Fire Rescue Services units were called to two incidents of pedestrians being struck within four minutes of each other on Thursday morning. While neither of the latest incidents rose to the tragic level of the incident which took the life of a 64-year-old man on Tuesday, they point out the need for drivers and folks on foot be extra careful on the roads.

   According to police, the first incident occurred at 7:41 am on Thursday morning in the Chic-Fil-A parking lot when a 45-year-old male had his foot run over by a car backing out of a parking space. The victim was transported to Holy Cross Germantown for treatment of his injuries.

   The second incident happened just four minutes later when a 20-year-old man was struck by a car as he darted across Rt. 355 to catch a bus near the intersection of Gunners Branch Road. Police said the driver of the sedan attempted to avoid the pedestrian but struck him. The pedestrian was transported to Suburban Hospital with serious injuries.  

   The vehicle, which was driven by a 22-year-old female, left the scene without rendering aid or exchanging information. The driver later self-reported her involvement after going home.  She was cited for leaving the scene of a collision. Police believe the pedestrian was held at fault for the collision.

   5th District Commander Mark Plazinski reminds drivers and pedestrians to use caution and care on the roads. “Traffic safety is everyone’s responsibility,” said Plazinski. “Pedestrians and drivers need to look out for each other. There is a lot at stake.”
