With two accidents involving pedestrians within days of one another along Hoosick Street in the Albany suburb of Troy, officials are now working to improve safety in the area.

The first Albany Pedestrian Accident occurred on Wednesday, March 27th, at approximately 8 a.m. on the corner of Hoosick and 10th Streets. A 19-year-old woman was attempting to cross the street when an SUV traveling eastbound on Hoosick struck the woman and her 4-year-old daughter. According to YNN News, both victims sustained serious injuries and were rushed to a local hospital for treatment.

The following Monday, another woman was struck by a vehicle as she attempted to cross the street at the corner of Hoosick and Burdett Avenue.

The accidents have caused some citizens to voice concerns about safety along the town’s roads, particularly Hoosick Street. They also prompted Mayor Lou Rosamilia to issue a statement saying the safety of citizens is a top priority of his administration and that he has asked the Department of Transportation to conduct a safety analysis on the stretch of road where the recent accidents occurred.

The Personal Injury Lawyers with William Mattar Law Offices know how serious a collision between a person and car can be. That’s why the firm is hopeful these efforts will be effective in identifying ways to increase pedestrian safety in the region. Doing so could, in turn, work to prevent crashes that cause injuries and fatalities.
