1 Killed in San Diego Pedestrian Crash on I-5 near Aliso Creek Rest Area
San Diego, California (February 1, 2020) – One person was fatally struck by multiple cars on Friday morning near Camp Pendleton in San Diego, according to authorities.
The crash happened on I-5 near Aliso Creek Rest Area on January 31, at about 6:15 p.m.
The CHP officials said one person got out of a car that had stopped on a freeway on the interstate. The pedestrian tried to cross the roadway on foot and was hit by several northbound vehicles on the roadway.
Upon arrival, emergency crews pronounced the pedestrian deceased at the scene.
Several lanes of I-15 were closed as a result of the accident.
The crash 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.
