Wisconsin Avenue Pedestrian Collision Not Serious


A pedestrian and car collision that closed Wisconsin Avenue for a few minutes on Sunday night was not serious and the pedestrian involved is expected to recover, according to Montgomery County Police. Police spokeswoman Angela Cruz said the incident occurred around 6:15 p.m. on Sunday at the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and Woodmont Avenue. The pedestrian was transported to a local hospital but police did not send out traffic crew units, meaning it does not appear the accident was serious. County officials say pedestrian collisions are more common this time of year because of the shorter days and dark conditions that accompany morning and afternoon rush hours. This morning, County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) is celebrating the five-year anniversary of his Pedestrian Safety Initiative, which the county claims has led to a decrease in pedestrian collisions and fatalities.
