The pedestrian who was hit by the car of a New Jersey politician has settled her personal injury case for $1,175,000. The woman was crossing the street in a crosswalk when she was struck by state senator Robert W. Singer’s suv. As a result of the car accident, the woman suffered a fractured arm, a fractured leg, fractured ankles, and a concussion. This is not the first automobile accident that the New Jersey state senator has been involved in. In 2001, a man died when the senator was unable to avoid another motorist who suddenly pulled out in front of him. Nor is this the first time the senator has hit a pedestrian. In 1997, the senator struck two pedestrians who stepped out between two parked cars and into the street. The two pedestrians admitted that they had been drinking heavily that evening.
