A young man named Trevor Vernon was seriously injured on Friday afternoon in Greensboro, North Carolina. According to available information, Mr. Vernon was walking along the sidewalk on Gate City Boulevard when a man pulling out of a parking lot hit him. Reports suggest that Mr. Vernon was walking in accordance with North Carolina law and that the man driving the car may be at fault for this wreck.
Mr. Vernon, who is 21 years old, was taken to Moses Cone Hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
We certainly hope that Mr. Vernon will recover from his injuries. As with many cases involving serious injuries to pedestrians, it remains to be learned whether the person driving the vehicle was possibly distracted at the time of the collision. Hopefully, the police investigation will provide more information about the cause of this collision.
