Teenage Pedestrian Injured in Buffalo Car Crash

A teenager was injured in Buffalo, New York last week when a car struck him, flipping him into the air. The driver of the vehicle that hit the teenager fled the scene, but was apprehended within minutes thanks to eye-witness descriptions.

The teenager, an 18-year-old boy from Buffalo, suffered multiple injuries but has been released from the hospital. The driver of the car, a 19-year old Nigerian exchange student, has been charged with assault, reckless driving and fleeing from a police officer, according to the AJC

Drivers are not only dangerous to other drivers—pedestrians like that Buffalo teenager are at risk, as well. Factors like impaired driving, poor visibility, speeding and more can lead to car accidents involving pedestrians, and the victims of these accidents are at risk of sustaining serious injuries or even fatalities.
