Man Struck and Killed by Vehicle on Highway 99 near Hammett Road in Modesto, Friday Morning

Modesto Pedestrian Accident on Highway 99 near Hammett Road Killed 42-Year-Old Man

Modesto, California (February 15, 2020) – The California Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of a fatal pedestrian accident that took place in Modesto shortly before 9 a.m. February 14.

As per the CHP report, a 42-year-old male party died after he was struck by a big northbound rig driven by 41-year-old Jatinder Singh of Ferndale, Washington, on Highway 99 just south of Hammett Road.

The primary report indicated that the unidentified man, who was in a van parked along the east shoulder of the highway, exited his vehicle and entered the northbound lanes where he was hit by the truck.

Singh remained at the scene after hitting the victim.

Meanwhile, detectives did not believe alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash.

The fatal accident remains under an active 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
