York County Jogger Struck By Car

A 34-year-old woman was injured and taken to the hospital after being hit by a car while jogging along a road in Conewago Township.

The incident occurred on February 15, according to reports. The jogger was struck by a teenage driver, who then swerved and smashed into a utility pole. Both the jogger and the driver suffered injuries described as non-life-threatening.

A total of 148 Pennsylvania pedestrians were killed and almost 4,500 people were injured in car-pedestrian crashes in 2012, according to the state Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

Following is from WHTM ABC News 27:

Northern York County Regional police said the woman was struck by a 17-year-old from Dover, who swerved to avoid stopped or slowing traffic on East Canal Road, near Greenbriar Road.

The teen crashed into a utility pole after he struck the jogger, police said.

The driver and the jogger were transported to York Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Their names were not immediately released.

Most car-pedestrian accidents in Pennsylvania occur when the pedestrian is:

  • Entering a crossing or intersection
  • Walking
  • Jogging or running
  • Standing still
  • Working
  • Pushing a vehicle
  • Working on a vehicle
  • Approaching or leaving a vehicle.

Pedestrians who have been injured – and the families of pedestrians who have been killed – in an accident involving a negligent or reckless driver may have a right to seek compensation to pay for their medical expenses, lost income, and other losses.
