Modesto Pedestrian Accident on Highway 99 Resulted in Death of Male Victim
Modesto, California (March 4, 2020) – A car struck and killed a male party on Saturday morning on SR-99, just north of Kansas Avenue in Modesto, a local news source reported.
The manner in which the collision occurred was not immediately disclosed at the time of the report.
Medical personnel responded at the scene shortly after 4:35 a.m. on March 1 and found the victim laying on the west shoulder of the highway.
The unidentified man was later pronounced dead at the crash site.
The operator of the involved vehicle stopped and cooperated with the law. The accident remains under an active investigation.
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
