Manuel Fernandez Fatal Victorville Pedestrian Accident on Luna Road at Princeton Drive 

San Jose, California (March 10, 2020) – Authorities have released the name of an 89-year-old Victorville man who died following a pedestrian accident that happened in the area of Victorville at about 4:32 p.m. on March 9.

As per the Victorville Police Department report, Manuel Fernandez died at a local trauma center where he was admitted after being struck by a white Chrysler minivan driven by 70-year-old Myrtle Meggs of Victorville east on Luna Road.

The initial report showed that Fernandez was walking south on Princeton Drive and crossing Luna Road prior to the occurrence of the accident on Monday afternoon.

Meggs remained at the scene and cooperated with the law.

The accident remains under an active investigation.

Anyone with information regarding the accident is urged to contact Deputy J. Carroll or Deputy K. Campbell, the Victorville Police Department at (760) 241-2911 or Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 956-5001.

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
