Holly Rood Hit, Killed by Vehicle on De Anza Drive in San Jacinto

Holly Rood ID’d as Woman Killed in San Jacinto Pedestrian Accident on De Anza Drive near Main Street

San Jacinto, California (May 7, 2020) – The woman who died after being struck by a vehicle Wednesday morning in San Jacinto has been identified as Holly Rood, 25.

Authorities said Rood was walking across De Anza Drive just west of Main Street at about 4:23 a.m., May 6, when she was hit by a Hyundai Elantra that was traveling southbound on De Anza Drive.

Rood was pronounced dead at the scene at around 4:44 a.m.

The driver of the vehicle involved remained at the scene and cooperated with the police.

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
