Albuquerque, NM (November 27, 2021) - One person suffered critical injuries in a pedestrian crash in Albuquerque on Friday night, November 26. The collision was reported around 7:40 p.m. at the intersection of Ortiz Drive and Anderson Avenue. 

A pedestrian was reportedly crossing at the intersection when they were struck by a motor vehicle. Emergency responders were promptly called to the scene to provide the necessary aid. The area was closed for several hours. 

The injured pedestrian was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. The at-fault driver fled the scene of the crash without rendering aid. The identity of the wounded pedestrian has not yet been released. 

An ongoing crash investigation is being handled by local law enforcement officials. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.

Pedestrian Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, Albuquerque, NM - Pedestrian Critically Injured in Crash at Ortiz Dr & Anderson AveNM - Pedestrian Critically Injured in Crash at Ortiz Dr & Anderson AveBecause pedestrians are more exposed to the dangers of the road, they are more likely to die in car accidents. Pedestrians and motorists share the road in New Mexico on a regular basis. Since 2016, the state has had the highest number of pedestrian fatalities in the country. Year after year, the number of people killed while walking increases and pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a car accident.

A pedestrian is vulnerable to the full force of a serious collision. As a result, pedestrians are frequently involved in traffic accidents that result in serious or fatal injuries. In the event of a collision, pedestrians are vulnerable to life-altering injuries and other damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Injured parties can sometimes recover lost compensation and hold the party responsible for the crash responsible for accident with the help of a qualified Albuquerque car accident lawyer. This may be the only way to get the full value of their claim in some cases.
