Gilberto Avila Hit, Killed by Vehicle on 10 Freeway in Whitewater

Gilberto Avila ID’d as Man Killed in Whitewater Pedestrian Accident on 10 Freeway near Whitewater Road

Whitewater, California (March 13, 2020) – The man who was struck and killed by a vehicle Thursday afternoon on Interstate 10 Freeway near Whitewater Road in Whitewater has been identified as Gilberto Avila, 40, of Yucca Valley.

Avila was standing near a tow-truck that had responded to a previous solo-car crash when a Chrysler Sebring struck him for unknown reasons at about 3 p.m. Thursday, March 12.

Avila suffered serious injuries and was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Oliver and his passengers were transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

Investigators determined that the Sebring was “traveling at an unsafe speed” for the road and weather conditions.

The accident 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 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
