Sacramento, California (April 24, 2020) – The California Highway Patrol said a female pedestrian was severely injured when she was hit by a car early Friday morning in Sacramento.
Authorities responded to Westbound Watt Avenue on-ramp to westbound Highway 50, where the accident had occurred at about 12:45 a.m.
At the scene, the first responders found a female party with severe injuries.
An initial investigation revealed that the victim was struck by a blue Toyota RAV4 for unknown reasons.
The pedestrian, whose identity remained unknown, was hospitalized with serious injuries.
Authorities are investigating the cause of the crash.
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
