Man Killed in Fresno Pedestrian Accident on North Weber and West Princeton Avenues
Fresno, California (March 19, 2020) – A pedestrian died after being struck by a vehicle in central Fresno early Thursday morning, according to authorities.
The deadly pedestrian accident occurred shortly before 4:00 a.m. on North Weber and West Princeton avenues.
Authorities said the pedestrian, a 32-year-old man, was at the intersection of North Weber and West Princeton avenues when he was struck by a pickup truck.
The man died in the accident. His name has not been disclosed pending notification of family.
The truck’s driver stopped at the scene and cooperated with police. Investigators determined that he was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident.
An investigation into the crash is underway.
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
