1 Hospitalized After San Diego Pedestrian Accident at 17th Street and Imperial Avenue
San Diego, California (March 14, 2020) – A pedestrian was hospitalized after being involved in a multi-vehicle collision early on Saturday morning in San Diego, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
As per the dispatch, the unidentified victim was struck and seriously injured by a vehicle at approximately 1:34 a.m. in the area of 17th Street and Imperial Avenue near 5 Freeway.
The initial report showed that the vehicle flew off the interstate and went through a fence at the time of the collision.
The victim was rushed to an area hospital by an ambulance for treatment.
Meanwhile, detectives towed the car away for evidence.
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
