Woman Hit, Killed by Vehicle on Redwood Boulevard at Rush Creek Place in Novato

Woman Killed, Mario Trigueros-Santos Arrested after Novato Pedestrian Crash on Redwood Boulevard at Rush Creek Place

Novato, California (June 9, 2020) – A woman was killed in an auto-pedestrian crash on Monday morning in Novato, police said.

The crash happened at about 5:00 a.m., on June 8, on Redwood Boulevard at Rush Creek Place.

As per the police report, the woman was struck by a vehicle. The manner at which the crash transpired is yet to be established.

The female pedestrian was transported to Marin General Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries.

Following the accident, the involved driver fled the scene.

After a while, the involved driver, Mario Trigueros-Santos, 48, returned to the scene and told the police he had struck the victim.

Trigueros-Santos was arrested and booked into Marin County Jail on suspicion of felony hit-and-run.

Traffic on the roadway was stopped for several hours due to the accident.

An investigation into the crash is underway.

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
