San Francisco, California (February 10, 2020) – A man was struck and killed by a vehicle early Sunday morning in Ingleside Heights, San Francisco, authorities said.
The deadly pedestrian accident was reported at around 3:15 a.m. Sunday, February 9 at the intersection of 19th Avenue and Junipero Serra Boulevard.
Authorities said a red Toyota Prius was heading southbound on 19th Avenue when, for unknown reasons, it struck the man.
The man sustained life-threatening injuries and was transported to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. Sadly, he later succumbed to his injuries at the hospital. His name has not been disclosed pending notification of family.
The driver of the Prius stopped at the scene.
No other details about the crash were given.
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
