Pedestrian Hit, Killed by Vehicle on 710 Freeway in Compton

57-Year-Old Pomona Man Killed in Compton Pedestrian Accident on Long Beach (710) Freeway near Alondra Boulevard

Compton, California (April 27, 2020) – A pedestrian died after being struck by a vehicle Sunday night in Compton, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The fatal accident took place at around 8:35 p.m. Sunday, April 26, on the Long Beach (710) Freeway, just north of Alondra Boulevard.

According to the CHP, the pedestrian, a 57-year-old Pomona man, was walking on the southbound 710 Freeway when a Honda sedan hit him.

The Pomona man was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not been disclosed pending notification of family.

The driver of the Honda stopped at the scene and was cooperative, authorities said.

It remains unclear why the pedestrian was on the freeway.

The accident remains under investigation. Anyone with information regarding the crash is urged to contact the  CHP at 323-980-4600.

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
