Pedestrian Killed in Crash on 215 Freeway in Perris

Pedestrian Dies in Perris Crash on 215 Freeway near D Street and Fourth Street

Perris, California (May 7, 2020) – A pedestrian died after getting hit killed by a vehicle in Perris Tuesday night, according to a report by the California Highway Patrol.

Just after 9:35 p.m. May 5, officers responded to the southbound 215 Freeway between D Street and Fourth Street for a report of a pedestrian accident.

As per the CHP report, a man was struck by a vehicle while he was walking in the furthest left lane of the freeway. He was then hit by multiple vehicles as he laid down in traffic lanes.

The victim, whose name has not been disclosed pending notification of family, died at the scene.

There was no description of the first vehicle that hit the pedestrian.

All lanes of the southbound 215 Freeway were closed but were reopened at around 12:40 a.m. Wednesday.

The CHP’s Accident Investigation Unit asked anyone who witnessed the crash to call them at 951-637-8000.

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
