Bakersfield, California (May 26, 2020) – 32-year-old Luciana Perez has been identified by the Kern County Sheriff’s Office as the woman who was killed in a pedestrian accident on Monday night in Bakersfield.
The accident was reported at about 10:49 p.m. May 25, on the southbound lanes of State Route 184 near Wilson Road.
Perez was reportedly walking on the highway when he was hit by a 2014 Volkswagen Passat that was traveling on the roadway.

Sadly, the patient died while undergoing treatment.
An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
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.
