Man Killed in Fresno Pedestrian Accident on Highway 99 near Jensen Avenue

Fresno, California (February 13, 2020) – A pedestrian was struck and killed by a big rig Thursday morning in Fresno, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The accident took place at about 3:30 a.m. on Highway 99 near Jensen Avenue.

According to the CHP, the big rig that was traveling northbound on Highway 99 when it struck the man who was  in the middle of the road.

The man was then hit by another vehicle, the CHP said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not been disclosed pending notification of family.

Both  drivers stopped after the accident.

Further details about the crash were not immediately provided.

The CHP is investigating the cause of 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
