Randy Stuart, Felipe Perez Hospitalized after Motorcycle, Pedestrian Accident on Highway 33 and Frank Cox Road in Westley

Randy Stuart and Felipe Perez Injured in Westley Motorcycle, Pedestrian Crash at Highway 33 and Frank Cox Road

Westley, California (April 24, 2020) – Authorities are investigating a Thursday morning crash involving a motorcycle and a pedestrian that left two people injured in Westley, Stanislaus County.

The mishap transpired at around 10:40 a.m., April 23 at Highway 33 and Frank Cox Road.

Randy Stuart, 61, of Patterson, was traveling northbound on Highway 33 on a 2008 Harley-Davidson when Felipe Perez, 62, of Grayson entered onto their pathway, the police said.

Stuart attempted to avoid hitting Perez by applying brakes, but it was too late.

Perez sustained severe injuries and was flown to Doctors Medical Center in Modesto for treatment.

Stuart sustained unspecified injuries and was taken to Memorial Medical Center for evaluation.

No further details about the crash were immediately available.

An investigation into the crash is underway.

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
