Brandeis C. DeBroeck, 26, of Lisle, was taken to Edward Hospital in Naperville, after being fatally struck by a vehicle Friday evening in west suburban Lisle.
Witnesses said a woman was walking across Maple from north to south when she was struck by a car in the eastbound curb lane of Maple. Police were notified just before 8:30 p.m. for the accident at Maple Avenue and Benedictine Parkway, according to Lisle police.
An elderly woman from Naperville was operating the vehicle at the time of the crash. She told police she never saw the woman walking in the crosswalk until her vehicle struck her.
Immediately following that crash, two other vehicles were unable to stop in time and a separate collision occurred, police said. No injuries were reported in the second crash.
With pedestrian accidents such as this one, the last thing that any family should have to think about is a lawsuit. However, the immediate investigation of pedestrian accidents is vital. The more time that passes the more likely witnesses are to forget details. In addition, it is important to have an attorney represent the victim during the traffic hearing, in the event that citations were issued.
