FORNEY, Texas, via inForney.com: — A woman was critically injured after being struck by a pickup truck on Broad Street in Forney on Thursday morning.
According to Mathew Richards at inForney.com, around 6:07 a.m. a female was crossing Broad Street on foot, around McGraw Street, when she was struck by an F-250 pickup truck, according to police.
The driver of the pickup truck did stop and is cooperating with police. He is not expected to face any charges in relation to the accident.
A CareFlite helicopter was requested to the scene but, due to weather concerns, the woman was taken by ground ambulance to Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. Her current condition is unknown.
From the information now known, it is not clear who was at-fault in the accident or why the woman was crossing the street. More information will be needed and the Forney Police Department will conduct a thorough investigation, as well as the driver’s insurance company to determine whether any liability exists for the injuries sustained by the woman. Any determination of liability will hinge on who had the right of way at the time of the accident. Since the accident occurred near, it is not known whether the pedestrian would have had the right to cross the road at that spot, however, further investigation by the insurance company and the Police will aid in determining where, if any, liability exists.
