Crosby, TX (November 9, 2021) – A serious pedestrian crash left an 11-year-old in critical condition on Monday evening in Crosby. The incident took place just after 6:00 p.m., according to information provided by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
Initial reports concerning the wreck state that police responded to the 17500 block of FM 2100 near Church Street to find a young child suffering from severe injuries after being struck by a car. Emergency responders airlifted the victim to a nearby medical center for treatment shortly after arriving at the scene.
The driver who struck the child remained on-site and cooperated with authorities. The events leading up to the collision are currently under local law enforcement investigation.
Traffic in the area was delayed for some time while emergency responders worked to secure the crash scene. Local motorists were urged by police to alternate their routes of travel while the roadway was occupied.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim in hopes of a full recovery. No further information has been reported at this time.
Pedestrian Collisions in Texas
In one recent year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recorded that about 129,000 victims nationwide required emergency room attention for medical treatment due to pedestrian and bicycle accident-related injuries. Furthermore, 5,376 of those 129,000 ultimately passed away from their injuries.
Pedestrians are twice as prone to suffering mortal injuries during a vehicle collision than any vehicle occupant. Those who survive must face a very arduous and costly road to recovery.
