1 Injured in San Marcos Pedestrian Accident on West Borden Road near Via Barquero
San Marcos, California (January 28, 2020) - A landscaper was hospitalized with serious injuries after an accident where a vehicle crashed into a trailer on the side of the road in San Marcos, according to the sheriff's department.
The collision happened just after 7:15 a.m. on Monday, January 27, on West Borden Road near Via Barquero in the Santa Fe Hills neighborhood.
Deputies said the landscaper was removing equipment from a trailer of a parked vehicle when a teen, who was driving a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze eastbound on Borden Road, crashed into the trailer and the landscaper.
The victim sustained a broken neck and other injuries. The victim was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
The driver, a 16-year-old, remained at the scene.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
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.
