High population density areas like San Mateo are prone to have a large number of pedestrians. With so many people walking along and crossing streets, it is imperative drivers remain attentive. Any distraction can lead to an accident that can leave a pedestrian with a serious injury or dead. When a catastrophic injury such as a brain injury is inflicted on a victim he may be left with a very difficult life ahead of him.

One such accident involving serious injuries occurred recently in San Mateo when a 67-year old woman was hit by a van while trying to cross the road. According to police, the woman was in the crosswalk when she was struck. The driver, who stopped at the scene, did not appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The woman was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
