Vehicle Struck and Killed Woman on Main Street in Santa Ana
Santa Ana, California (April 22, 2020) – Authorities are investigating the circumstances that lead to a fatal pedestrian accident in Santa Ana Wednesday morning, April 22.
A female pedestrian died after being struck by a southbound car while crossing Main Street outside a marked crosswalk just about 5:30 a.m.
Santa Ana police said the car was moving on a green light at the time of the collision.
The driver of the involved vehicle remained at the scene after hitting the woman.
Police temporarily shut down Main Street from Dyer Road to Garry Avenue for an unknown duration.
The detectives handling the case are gathering more evidence to determine the cause of the accident.
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
