Valencia, California (February 8, 2020) – An elderly woman was hospitalized Friday morning after being hit by a vehicle in Granary Square, Valencia, according to authorities.
The accident happened at about 11:35 a.m. Friday, February 7 in the 25000 block of McBean Parkway near the CVS Pharmacy.
Authorities said the elderly woman was struck by a vehicle on McBean Parkway.

No other details about the crash were given.
The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
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
