Accident Reconstructionist Called in Fatal Pedestrian Accident

Early Thursday morning a pedestrian crossing Branch Avenue in Prince George's County was struck by a vehicle and killed. The driver of the vehicle remained on the scene to assist the police officers with the investigation. Branch Avenue was closed in both directions while an accident reconstructionist was summoned.

An accident reconstructionist could help the investigating officers determine what happened. Weather conditions, speed of vehicle, time of day, physical evidence such as skid marks are taken into consideration when an accident is being investigated. An accident reconstructionist should be called in fatal or serious motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents.

If you, a family member, or someone you know has been injured as a pedestrian or if you would like more information on car accidents, please contact Portner & Shure for a free consultation.
