Jose Esquivel Injured in Cotati Pedestrian Accident on Highway 101 near Railroad Avenue

Cotati, California (February 18, 2020) – A Calistoga man was struck and severely injured by a vehicle Tuesday morning in Cotati, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The accident happened on Highway 101 near Railroad Avenue at about 7:15 a.m. Tuesday, February 18.

According to the CHP, Jose Esquivel, 34, of Calistoga, was driving a truck and had pulled over into the shoulder to pick up insulation that had fallen on the roadway. He was then hit by a Toyota Camry that was being driven southbound on Highway 101 by Marvin Ralda, 28, of San Rafael.

The paramedics who responded to the incident said Esquivel was conscious and moving. He was then taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

No additional information about the accident was provided.

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
