Erich Hostetter Injured in Skateboard Accident on Highway 49 in Auburn

Erich Hostetter Seriously Injured in Auburn Skateboard Crash on Highway 49 near Luther Road

Auburn, California (March 2, 2020) – One person was seriously injured in a skateboard accident on Saturday morning in Auburn, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Highway 49 and Luther Road at about 7:38 a.m., on February 29.

The police said Erich Hostetter was riding a long-board skateboard northbound on Highway 49 towards the intersection at Luther Road. At the same time, an Auburn man was heading southbound on Highway 49 in a Honda Accord.

The Honda driver made a left turn on a green left arrow traffic signal onto the eastbound Luther Road. Hostetter then struck the front of the Honda after failing to yield to the driver. The impact threw Hostetter onto the road.

Hostetter was traveling at an unknown speed prior to the collision, according to the police.

Hostetter was taken to Sutter Roseville Medical with serious injuries.

The driver of the Honda was not injured.

Alcohol and drugs were not believed to be factors in the crash.

The crash remains under 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 apedestrian 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
