Mountain View, California (February 13, 2020) – A pedestrian was struck and injured by a vehicle Tuesday night in Mountain View, according to authorities.
The accident happened at about 8:40 p.m. Tuesday, February 11 at the intersection of Shoreline Boulevard and El Camino Real.
Authorities said a black Mercedes-Benz sedan hit the pedestrian at the Mountain View intersection.
The pedestrian, only identified as a 79-year-old man, was transported to a hospital with unspecified injuries. His name and condition at this time were not disclosed.
Alcohol or drugs were not considered a factor in the accident.
An investigation into the crash is underway.
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
