John Hughes Hit, Killed by Vehicle on Highway 120 In Oakdale

John Hughes Killed in Oakdale Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident on Highway 120

Oakdale, California (February 11, 2020) – John Hughes, 61, of Newman, has been identified as the pedestrian who was killed Monday evening in an alleged DUI accident in Oakdale.

The deadly accident happened shortly before 7:00 p.m. Monday, February 10 on Highway 120.

Authorities said Matthew Keith, 28, was driving a Chevrolet pickup northbound on Highway 120 when he struck Hughes, who was walking north on the side of the highway.

Hughes was taken to a hospital, where he was later declared dead.

Keith did not stop to render aid and fled the scene. He called the CHP at around 9:30 p.m.

Keith was later arrested on suspicion of DUI and hit-and-run.

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
