The first pedestrian was hit around 7:54 am at the intersection of Richard Montgomery Drive and Rockville Pike. After the original incident was cleared, a second pedestrian was hit while crossing in the same intersection around 8:42 am.

Many times, pedestrian accidents are caused by motorists who are either oblivious to a pedestrian’s presence on the road or are engaging in reckless or distracted driving. This behavior may lead to pedestrians sustaining personal injuries or potential fatalities. In some cases, when specific intersections harbor more traffic accidents than usual, it may indicate that negligent municipal planning is a contributing factor in the number of accidents occurring.
