Albuquerque, NM (January 17, 2022) - A pedestrian was injured after being hit by a motor vehicle in the Albuquerque area on Saturday night, January 15. The crash was reported just before midnight at the intersection of Central Avenue NE and Chama Street NE.

The driver reportedly glanced at his phone and failed to notice a pedestrian crossing at the intersection. The man struck the victim. The pedestrian sustained critical injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. The identity of the injured party has not been disclosed at this time. 

An investigation into the cause of the accident is being managed 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 Crashes in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Pedestrian Hurt in Crash at Central Ave & Chama StPedestrians are more susceptible to road hazards, which increases their risk of serious injury in car accidents. In New Mexico, pedestrians and motorists frequently cross paths on the road. Since 2016, the state has had the country's highest rate of pedestrian deaths. Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise in the United States, with pedestrians 1.5 times more likely than passengers in passenger cars to die in a car accident.

When a pedestrian is involved in a collision with a motor vehicle in New Mexico, they are at a significant disadvantage. Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise across the country as a result of this. Pedestrians, unlike passengers in passenger cars, are vulnerable to the full force of an accident. This is one of the reasons why pedestrian accidents account for a disproportionately high number of national highway fatalities each year. A pedestrian injury lawyer in Albuquerque can assist victims in recovering financial compensation for their injuries and other damages caused by the accident. Despite popular belief, determining who is to blame for a pedestrian collision is not always so simple.
