Germantown, MD (January 27, 2022) – Just before 6 p.m., on January 25, the Montgomery County Police Department and the Montgomery County Fire Rescue & Services responded to the site of a collision on Father Hurley Boulevard.
Reports from the MCFRS show that one pedestrian was struck by a vehicle while traveling on Father Hurley Boulevard near Wisteria Drive.

Our thoughts are with the young adult who was harmed as a result of this accident.
Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
Pedestrians are often left with serious injuries following motor vehicle accidents. These victims do not have the protection that other motorists have. As a result, they are likely to need emergency medical assistance and have to go through a lengthy recovery process.
It is very common for pedestrians to suffer serious injuries as a result of their accidents. Some common injuries include:
Broken bones: Pedestrians often suffer from broken hands, arms, legs, and feet from their crashes. There are many cases when pedestrians suffer compound fractures. Some of the worse fractures we have seen have led to the need for amputations.
Traumatic brain injuries: Pedestrians suffer traumatic brain injuries that impact their memory, balance, and other neurological functions. These injuries often demand lengthy medical care and can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to treat.
Spinal cord injuries: There are many cases where pedestrians are left paralyzed as a result of their accidents. Spinal cord injuries can be extremely life-altering and require long-term care. Many people have to depend on others to perform even the most basic task.
