Victorville, California (March 17, 2020) – One male was injured after an auto-pedestrian crash on Monday morning in Victorville, according to police.
The accident happened at about 8:49 a.m., on March 16, near Valley Center Drive and outer 7th Street.
The police said a GMC Yukon was pulling out of the Alaska USA Credit union when, for unknown reasons, it struck a male pedestrian who was crossing the street.
The man was taken to a hospital with a possible head injury. He was then airlifted to a nearby trauma center. The condition of the patient was not disclosed.
The involved driver, a 39-year old male, was not injured in the crash.
More details about the crash were immediately not available.
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 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.
