Man Killed in Riverside Pedestrian Accident on westbound Pomona (60) Freeway near Market Street
Riverside, California (April 6, 2020) – A man died after being struck by a vehicle on the Pomona (60) Freeway Sunday night in Riverside, according to authorities.
Shortly before 10:00 p.m. Sunday, April 5, the California Highway Patrol officers received a report about the accident on the westbound Pomona Freeway, just west of Market Street.
The CHP said the man was struck by a vehicle that was traveling in the westbound lane of the freeway.
The man was declared deceased at the scene. His name was withheld pending notification of family.
According to the CHP, a truck and a sedan were stopped on the right-hand shoulder of the freeway, but their role in the crash was not immediately known.
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
