Pedestrian Struck, Critically Injured by Vehicle on Effie Street in Fresno

Woman In Critical Condition after Fresno Pedestrian Accident at Effie Street and Ashlan Avenue

Fresno, California (February 26, 2020) - A pedestrian was struck and critically injured by a vehicle Tuesday night in northeast Fresno, according to a local news source.

The accident was reported at around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 25 at Ashlan Avenue and Effie Street near Blackstone.

Authorities said a woman was walking down the center median of the road when she moved suddenly into the path of an oncoming vehicle.

The woman suffered major injuries and was taken to a local hospital where she was listed in critical condition.

The driver of the vehicle involved stopped at the scene and cooperated with the police.

No other details about the crash were immediately 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 apedestrian 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
