Rock Island Woman Cited in Connection to Moline Crash that Seriously Injured Pedestrian
Police in Moline, IL, have cited 62-year-old Betty Vessey of Rock Island for leaving the scene of an injury accident after she reportedly stuck a pedestrian with her car last Tuesday.
According to the Moline Police Department, the incident occurred at approximately 10:45 p.m. Tuesday, October 14 in the 700 block of John Deere Road. Vessy was reportedly eastbound on John Deere when she struck a pedestrian who was walking along the roadway. She stopped her vehicle and got out, then drove off after she was unable to locate the pedestrian she struck, police said.
Police who arrived at the scene found a 47-year-old male pedestrian lying in the roadway with numerous injuries. He was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to sources. Police have not released his identity.
After she heard a man was struck by a hit-and-run driver on John Deere Road on Tuesday, Vessey contacted Moline police at around 5 p.m. the next day and reported that she was the driver who struck the pedestrian, sources indicate. She received a citation for failure to report a traffic accident and operating an uninsured motor vehicle, police confirmed.
Pending the outcome of the investigation into the Moline crash, the 47-year-old man Vessey struck and injured may be entitled to a personal injury claim. Injuries caused by pedestrian accidents can be severe and require ongoing medical expenses. With the help of an attorney, victims of these types of accidents can seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering following an accident.
