Elderly Pedestrian Seriously Injured in Ventura County Car Crash
81-year-old Barbara Fritschel was struck and injured in a serious pedestrian wreck that occurred on February 21, 2012, around 8:30 a.m. on a Thousand Oaks sidewalk. According to the authorities, Fritschel and 79-year-old Martha Bielke were walking on a sidewalk in the 1400 block of Calle de Oro. Both of them stumbled and fell while trying to move out of the path of a motorist backing out of a driveway.
The driver, 63-year-old Marsha Mann, did not see the pair and continued backing up. He drove over Fritschel. Immediately afterward, Mann stopped at the accident to call for help. Fritschel was treated at the scene and was later transported to Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center. She is in stable condition but remained in intensive care. Bielke suffered minor injuries and was treated at the accident scene.
From the present facts, it is unclear how this pedestrian accident occurred. Officials believe that Mann accidentally drive over Fritschel. In situations such as this one, where a pedestrian is the victim of a serious car accident, the family members of the victim may benefit from speaking with a Ventura pedestrian accident lawyer.
Our personal injury law office hopes that the injuries suffered by the victim do not prove fatal.
