Man Killed in Sacramento Pedestrian Accident at Las Palmas Avenue and Rio Linda Boulevard
Sacramento, California (February 11, 2020) – Sacramento police department is investigating a fatal pedestrian accident that happened on Monday evening.
The police said the accident happened at Las Palmas Avenue and Rio Linda Boulevard at about 6 p.m.
The California Highway Patrol said a man was hit by a car for unknown reasons. The victim was transported to an area hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
The identity of the victim was not immediately disclosed.
As per the report, the driver stopped and cooperated with the authorities.
Although an investigation is ongoing, the authorities believe DUI was not a factor in the accident.
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.
