1 Seriously Hurt in Pedestrian Crash at Bernard Street and Mount Vernon Avenue in Bakersfield

Man Severely Injured after Bakersfield Pedestrian Accident at Bernard Street and Mount Vernon Avenue

Bakersfield, California (March 23, 2020) – One person was seriously injured in an auto-pedestrian crash on Sunday evening in Bakersfield, according to police.

The crash occurred at around 7:30 p.m., on March 22, at the intersection of Bernard Street and Mount Vernon Avenue.

A man crossing the road in a crosswalk was struck by a car that entered the intersection on a green light. The man was crossing the roadway at a red light, according to the police.

The pedestrian sustained serious injuries and was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

The involved driver remained at the scene and was cooperative. He was cited for operating a car with a suspended license, according to the authorities.

Drugs or alcohol were not a factor in the accident.

The intersection was closed as the CHP conducted an investigation. Anyone with information about the crash is urged to call the Bakersfield Police Department at (661) 327-7111.

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.
