Woman Hit, Killed by Vehicle at Kerr Avenue and Yosemite Boulevard in Modesto

Woman Killed in Modesto Pedestrian Accident at Kerr Avenue and Yosemite Boulevard

Modesto, California (March 31, 2020) – A woman was struck and killed by a vehicle as she was crossing a street Tuesday afternoon in Modesto, authorities said.

The fatal accident took place at about 2:45 p.m. at the intersection of Kerr Avenue and Yosemite Boulevard.

Authorities said a GMC Yukon was making a left turn onto Kerr Avenue when, for unknown reasons, it struck a woman who was walking on Kerr Avenue crossing Yosemite Boulevard.

The pedestrian was taken to a local hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries. Her name has not been disclosed pending notification of next of kin.

The driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with the police. Investigators said neither alcohol or drugs were suspected factors in the collision.

The accident 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
