Pedestrian Struck on Morris Avenue

Accident has shut down the road between Sunrise and Merrick Road.

A female pedestrian was struck by a car on Morris Avenue Thursday afternoon, Rockville Centre Police confirmed.

The accident occurred just before 3 p.m. on Morris Avenue between Sunrise Highway and Merrick Road. Morris Avenue was shut down between those two roadways due to an established crime scene.

The pedestrian was transported to a local hospital. The extent of her injuries is unknown at this time.

The accident marks the third pedestrian hit in the area within the last week and the second near Merrick Road. An 84-year-old Rockville Centre resident was killed crossing Merrick Road last Thursday after he was struck by a tractor-trailer.

A 33-year-old woman was killed Wednesday night while crossing Grand Avenue in Baldwin.

This should not come as a surprise to ANYONE who walks ANYWHERE in this Village. Drivers are MANIACS!! They don't give a crap who or what is in their way. People drive 50 mph in PARKING LOTS - esp the lot behind RJ Daniels. It is astounding but anyone who walks even 2 blocks can see numerous close calls. The surprising thing is that more pedestrians are not killed more often. And what do the police do? Nada. And Village Officials alwasy say there are "plenty" of parking spaces for everyone if you just walk a few blocks - sure if you don't mind taking your life in your hands. Be careful out there folks.

Add texting or looking at their phones while driving 50 mph. I see it all the time. It's really scary. It's a problem everywhere but it seems way more obnoxious in RVC for some reason.

Even one of RVCs Code Enforcement Officers was hit by a car while working a while ago. Drivers have a thing for "Driving while impaired (drugs) or have a cell phone or texing conversation going on, or even both. They should have the book thrown at them for putting peoples lives in danger.
