Alfredo Rodriguez Arrested after Pedestrian Accident on Pearblossom Highway in Palmdale

Palmdale, California (January 24, 2020) – 62-year-old Alfredo Rodriguez was arrested on suspicion of DUI following a fatal pedestrian accident that happened on Thursday night in Palmdale.

The authorities said the Palmdale man was driving a car westbound on when he drifted to the shoulder and struck a woman who was walking her dog.

The unidentified woman succumbed to her injuries at the scene.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Rodriquez continued driving and was involved in a multi-vehicle collision in Palmdale that left at least seven people injured.

Two of the victims were transported to a local hospital for treatment of major injuries.

Rodriguez and three other people were hospitalized with minor to moderate injuries while two were evaluated at the scene.

Mr. Rodriguez was later arrested on suspicion of DUI

No other information about the accident was provided.

The authorities are 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.
