A pedestrian crossing a busy Langley Park, Md. street Monday is expected to live after being struck by a car.
The accident happened at University Boulevard and 14th Avenue, a heavily trafficked area, without crosswalks for several blocks. It has become a hot spot for pedestrian accidents, so much that local officials installed a fence along parts of the median.
Bakery owner Carlos Ramirez told News4 he often sees people sprinting accross University Boulevard, narrowly skipping fast-moving vehicles.
"This has been a problem almost every day," Ramirez said. "It was terrible to see someone on the floor, bleeding."
