San Jose, California (March 10, 2020) – One person was killed in an auto-pedestrian accident on Saturday morning in San Jose, according to police.

Olman Aparicio Ayala, 23, was driving a 1997 Acura when, for unknown reasons, he crashed on the roadway. Ayala then alighted from his car and stood on the road where a 2014 Dodge and a 2019 Chevy struck him.
The Chevy then crashed into a 1999 Lexus, according to the police.
Ayala was pronounced dead at the scene.
The two drivers involved in the crash were hospitalized with minor injuries.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
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
