A 2010 Chrysler Pacifica lost control and pulled onto the shoulder of the road and struck a 15-year-old boy in the process, according to Louisville police.
The vehicle’s driver, 43, reportedly lost control of the car while driving along Hess Lane, at Audubon. Police said that it is not known what happened to cause a loss of vehicular control. The cause is still undergoing investigation.
According to the police report, the SUV swerved off onto the shoulder of the road and impacted the street light pole. The vehicle then hit the boy on the side of the road before coming to a halt. He is now left in critical condition from the severity of the impact. It was reported that the boy had fractures on the shoulder and leg as well as injuries to his head and arms.
The driver of the Chrysler sustained injuries on his head and back, police said. The other two passengers of his had minor injuries from the accident.
The victims were taken to the hospital for treatment where the boy remains in a coma at the time of this report. No further information has been divulged by authorities.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, commented on the crash. “We are sorry to hear about this tragic accident that put a teenager in such risk. Our hearts go out to the victims’ families and we pray that they make a quick recovery and the boy pulls out of the coma. We hope this reminds drivers to be vigilant and to drive as safely as they can everyday. When we get into accidents especially those where we are not at fault we sometimes need legal help and we urge the victims to seek professionals who know what they are doing in a time of crisis.”
