28-Year-Old Man Killed in San Diego Pedestrian Accident on Jamacha Road near Glencoe Drive
San Diego, California (May 22, 2020) – Authorities are investigating an auto-pedestrian accident that killed a 28-year-old man on Thursday night in San Diego.
The deadly crash transpired at around 11:00 p.m., on May 21, in the 8100 block of Jamacha Road, near Glencoe Drive.
A BMW sedan, driven by a 21-year-old man, was traveling westbound on Jamacha Road when, for unknown reasons, it struck the pedestrian who was walking westbound in the eastbound lanes, according to the police.
The pedestrian was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The involved driver drove off a few blocks from the crash site and walked away. He was located and arrested on suspicion of fleeing the fatal crash. He was later released.
Drugs or alcohol were not believed to have played a role in the crash.
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
