Businesses on West Tennessee Street in Florida Concerned Over Pedestrian Safety Following Crashes
TALLAHASSEE, FL- Business owners are worried about the safety of their customers after several pedestrian crashes have occurred in the area, according to WCTV.TV. The most recent crash took place this past week at the intersection of Borough and West Tennessee Street in the early morning. The pedestrian in that collision survived and was transported to a local hospital.*
Just one week earlier, a car struck a teenager on an e-scooter. The driver was attempting to turn right from Murphree Street onto West Tennessee and struck the victim. There are disputing witness reports as to whether the motorist stopped at the stop sign before the crash. The pedestrian has not spoken about what transpired, but he survived the crash and was transported to the hospital.
People with businesses in the area are conflicted as to who is at fault for these collisions. One woman who works at a local business stated that a woman almost hit her while a driver was speeding on the road. Other people say that pedestrians are not cautious in the area and are often spotted walking into an intersection before the light changes or jaywalking outside of a marked crosswalk.
Whether driving a car or crossing the street, one thing is for certain. Pedestrians and drivers alike should not be looking at their phones while walking or driving. Distractions are a major factor in many of these instances.
