Charles Guerrero Fatal Pittsburg Pedestrian Crash on Highway 4
Pittsburg, California (February 18, 2020) – Contra Costa County coroner's office has identified 33-year-old Charles Guerrero as the victim who died following a pedestrian crash that happened in Pittsburg after 1:00 a.m. on February 16.
Guerrero was walking in the No 2 lane of the eastbound Highway 4 at the Loveridge Road off-ramp on Sunday morning when he was hit by a 2013 Honda that was exiting the freeway.
The Honda motorist, who was identified as a 36-year-old Livermore man, stopped after hitting Guerrero and cooperated with the law.
Guerrero died in the accident.
Neither drugs nor alcohol were suspected factors in the accident. An investigation into the crash 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
