Man Fatally Hit by Vehicle on Highway 101 in Ukiah

Pedestrian Dies in Ukiah Accident on Highway 101 near Burke Hill Road

Ukiah, California (January 21, 2020) – A driver struck and killed a pedestrian late Sunday night in Ukiah, the California Highway Patrol has reported.

The deadly crash, which occurred on northbound Highway 101 south of the Burke Hill Road overpass, took place at about 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 19.

According to the report, a driver in a silver Ford F-150 was traveling northbound on Highway 101 when he struck a man who was walking in the roadway.

The victim succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

The driver, identified as John Ibanez, 22, of Reedley, remained at the scene.

An investigation into the incident 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.
