The left over ice on residential roads can be extremely dangerous, especially with more snow and cold weather in the forecast. According to 9 News, a vehicle lost control on some ice in a Lakewood neighborhood and hit three young pedestrians. Witnesses claim that the entire street is covered with sheets of ice and when the car attempted to stop, it slid and jumped the curb. The three pedestrians were rushed to a nearby hospital with severe injuries. The police are still investigating the accident but they believe the car did not realize the street was a dead end and had to stop suddenly.  Clearwater pedestrian accident lawyer, Jim Dodson said, “Pedestrian traffic accidents and fatalities have become a dangerous epidemic. When a pedestrian is hurt in an accident, the injuries are often very serious and many times, fatal”. There are no signs in the area indicating a dead end. All thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families for a speedy recovery.

With no where to pile all the recent snow, many just threw it in the streets that were not being plowed. Many residential roads went unplowed after numerous snow storms that eventually compiled into sheets of patchy ice, making it extremely difficult to drive on. With more snow inevitably on its way this winter, make sure to drive with caution, even in low speed areas. Any accident involving a child is tragic, making sure to drive carefully when any amount of snow or ice is on the ground is advisable.
