Palm Springs, California (April 15, 2020) – Authorities are investigating a fatal pedestrian accident that occurred on Tuesday afternoon in Palm Springs.

The accident happened at around 4:05 p.m., on April 14, near North Gene Autry Trail and East Vista Chino Drive.

As per the police reports, a pedestrian was, for unknown reasons, struck by a truck on the roadway.

The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene due to the accident.

Following the mishap, the roadway between East Vista Chino Drive and East Via Escuela Drive was closed for an unspecified period.

An investigation into the accident is underway.

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
