I was glad to read in the news today that the condition of a 15-year-old girl who was struck on Monday by one car and then run over by another, in Auburn, New York, has improved. The girl’s condition has been upgraded from “life-threatening” to “fair” at Upstate University Hospital, according to police.
It doesn’t surprise me that this accident happened on Grant Ave, one of the busiest — and most accident prone – roads in all of Cayuga County. We have represented many car accident victims who were hit on that busy arterial. The posted speed limit is rarely obeyed there — motorists are in a hurry, rushing between Auburn and Syracuse and all the places in between.
The girl was trying to cross Grant Ave in a rain storm shortly after 9 p.m., near the Metro Mattress store. She was apparently trying to reach the MacDonald’s on the other side of Grant Ave. A driver trying to make a left turn from Grant onto McIntosh Drive struck her. Then, to make matters much worse, a second car ran over her as she lay in the road.
Let’s pray for a complete and speedy recovery.
