Man Hospitalized After Vista Pedestrian Crash at Civic Center Drive and South Santa Fe Avenue

Major Injury Vista Pedestrian Accident at Civic Center Drive and South Santa Fe Avenue

Vista, California (April 9, 2020) – The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the circumstances that lead to a pedestrian collision at the intersection of Civic Center Drive and South Santa Fe Avenue in Vista at approximately 8:41 p.m. April 8.

As per the dispatch, a 59-year-old man was hospitalized at Palomar Medical Center with life-threatening injuries after being hit by a southbound car Wednesday night.

The involved driver, who was identified as a 31-year-old man, remained at the scene after the wreck.

Officials did not believe drugs or alcohol were played a role in the accident.

The cause of the accident remains under an active 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
