Stroudsburg Pedestrian Runs Into Car – Blames Driver

Posted on: January 28th, 2011       Attorney Thomas Newell

On Jan. 25, 2011, a woman parked her car on Main Street in Stroudsburg PA. According to The Pocono Record, she exited the auto and began to run across Main St., in neither a crosswalk nor at an intersection. The Monroe County pedestrian allegedly ran into a Hyundai Sonata and fell to the ground.

The East Stroudsburg PA driver got out of his car to assist the injured pedestrian. To his surprise, she handed him an insurance bill and requested he go to a nearby insurance office and “pay it for her.” Your Pennsylvania pedestrian accident lawyer reminds all pedestrians that the PA Vehicle Code requires them to cross urban streets at a crosswalk or intersection.
