Severe Head Trauma Cased by Daytona Beach Pedestrian Accident

Early on Sunday Morning, police officers and other emergency responders in Daytona Beach were called to Mason Avenue to investigate and assist an injured individual in the aftermath of a car and pedestrian crash. According to the report filed by the Daytona beach Police Department, the incident involved a man named Samuel Sledd, a 46-year-old Daytona Beach resident, who was attempting to cross Mason Avenue on foot. As Sledd was in the road, a car came along heading northbound on Mason Avenue. The driver of the car, an individual who has yet to be named, was unable to avoid the foot-bound Sledd and collided with the pedestrian.

This event, which occurred shortly after midnight on Sunday, was reported immediately by the driver of the automobile who called the 911 as soon as he could. The emergency response crews arrived quickly and rushed the badly injured Samuel Sledd to the Halifax Hospital. His condition at the time of admission was listed as critical. The report filed by the Florida Highway Patrol states that Sledd suffered from serious injures to his head.

Injuries such as this are frightening to fathom and process, and it often becomes the case that even when the victim survives the initial incident, the head injuries present themselves as an unsurpassably violent trauma. Those who suffer from traumatic brain injuries due to automobile incidents often find themselves in a highly challenging situation, needing to juggle the sudden medical bills as well as handle the loss of wages that often accompanies such injuries.

The Daytona Beach Police Department say that, as of right now, no charges have been filed against the driver of the vehicle, and it is the official position that the car’s operator is, in fact, not responsible for the events that occurred on Sunday morning. No other information has been released regarding the situation, and it is not known how the badly injured Sledd is currently doing nor if his family has been notified. As more facts in the case become available for the public consumption the Florida Highway Patrol and the Daytona Beach Police Department will work together to share what new discoveries are made.
