Man In Critical Condition After Being Hit by Car on Union Avenue in Bakersfield

Man Suffers Major Injuries in Bakersfield Crash on Union Avenue Saturday evening

Bakersfield, California (March 23, 2020) – A traffic crash in Bakersfield left a pedestrian with critical injuries Saturday night, authorities said.

The pedestrian accident happened at about 8:13 p.m. Saturday, March 21 in the 1600 block of Union Avenue.

According to the police, an unidentified man was attempting to walk across Union Avenue when a vehicle hit him.

Paramedics responded to the scene and provided medical aid to the pedestrian who sustained major injuries as a result of the accident. He was then transported to a local hospital in critical condition.

The driver cooperated with the police. Alcohol or drugs were not considered a factor in the crash.

The accident remains under investigation. Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to call the Bakersfield Police at (661)327-7111.

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
