Pedestrian Killed in Riverside Crash at Washington Street and Sage Street
Riverside, California (March 30, 2020) – A pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle Monday morning in Riverside, according to authorities.
The man, whose name was not immediately disclosed, was walking across the intersection of Washington Street and Sage Street when a vehicle hit him at about 7:04 a.m.
The man sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not been disclosed pending notification of family.
The driver of the vehicle stopped at the scene and was cooperative, police said.
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
