Pedestrian injured after being hit by car in North Bethesda

A 31-year-old woman was seriously injured Saturday morning after Montgomery County Police say she tried to cross Tuckerman Lane near the intersection with Kings Riding Way. The woman was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. The driver was identified as Chase Lawrence Dobler, 27, of Rockville, and was not injured [WTOP].

This horrible accident happened where the Trolley Trail crosses Tuckerman Lane. It is a very dangerous crossing, and we call on MCDOT to make this intersection safe for pedestrians, bikes, and cars. And to do so with great haste.

Lives would be saved, along with making driving on Tuckerman less tense, if this crosswalk, and the second just further west, were equipped with a pedestrian-activated stoplight. That way pedestrians and drivers would have the protection of a stop light while, unlike with a regular stoplight, traffic flow would be interpreted only when pedestrians were present.
