Fatal Fresno Pedestrian Accident on Highway 140 near Santa Fe Avenue
Fresno, California (April 18, 2020) – Authorities are investigating the cause of a fatal pedestrian accident that happened in Fresno just before 10:00 p.m. on April 14.
As per the report, a woman in her 30s died after being hit by two vehicles moving opposite directions on Highway 140 near Santa Fe Avenue Tuesday night.
Police said the pedestrian was in the middle of the road at the time of the collision.
The highway was closed up to approximately 1:30 a.m. as investigation and clean-up took place.
A person on foot is no match for a vehicle. Pedestrians have virtually no protection when they are hit by cars, motorcycles, trucks, and other vehicles. Sadly, this often leads to catastrophic injuries and/or death. “Due to the incredibly serious nature of these types of injuries, pedestrian accident cases often require special care in order to help ensure victims receive the full compensation they need for extensive medical bills, ongoing rehabilitation therapy, in-home care, lost past and future earnings, and numerous other economic and non-economic damages”, Said Arin Khodaverdian, an experienced pedestrian accident attorney.
Arin noted that pedestrians, in most instances, have the right-of-way when crossing a street or an intersection. According to Arin, to properly investigate a pedestrian crash and prove negligence, enough resources are required. “A skilled attorney has the resources and will help investigate the accident to determine the party at fault,” Arin said
