One Killed in Cathedral City Pedestrian Accident on Ramon Road
Cathedral City, California (January 28, 2020) - One person was killed in an auto-pedestrian collision on Ramon Road in Cathedral City Monday night, police said.
The deadly crash happened at about 8:00 p.m. on Monday, January 27, between Sky Blue Water Trail and Avenida El Mundo.
Police said one person died in the crash. The identities of the involved parties and details on how the pedestrian was hit were not immediately available.
Police are working to determine the cause of the crash.
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
