New York State Police Investigating Barton Pedestrian Accident on Old Barton Road

Pedestrian Killed In Barton Car Accident

BARTON, NEW YORK (March 27, 2024) – A pedestrian riding a tricycle has tragically died in a Barton car accident along Old Barton Road.

Barton police officials are saying that the accident took place around 4:57 p.m. on March 26. A pedestrian was riding a tricycle on the road when they were hit by a vehicle.

Paramedics were called to the scene in order to help the victim. Sadly, they died due to the severe nature of their injuries. A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For Barton Pedestrian Accidents

Thousands of pedestrians are killed or seriously injured in collisions every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control, “Nearly 8,000 pedestrians were killed on our nation’s roads in crashes involving a motor vehicle in 2021. That’s about one death every 66 minutes. One in six people who died in crashes in 2021 were pedestrians.” There are a number of factors that could contribute to pedestrian collisions.

  • Inclement weather
  • Poor road conditions
  • Distracted driving
  • Driver intoxication

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid hitting pedestrians. This is true even if a pedestrian is idle in the middle of the road. If a driver fails to take steps in order to avoid hitting a pedestrian, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. The family of any person who is killed in a pedestrian accident may have legal recourse through a civil claim.
