Sadly, on Friday nights some people make the wrong decision and try to drive home after drinking alcohol. This combined with the impaired vision caused by darkness can create dangerous situations for the driver and everyone around them. Pedestrians are especially vulnerable to accidents because of their lack of protection and low visibility in the dark. Unfortunately, one pedestrian was killed recently in a motor vehicle accident in California.
The accident took place in the early morning of March 8 at around 1 a.m. and involved one car and one pedestrian. The driver was supposedly driving home after drinking alcohol and hit the 25-year-old victim with her vehicle. The victim was transported to the hospital by emergency personnel, but was pronounced deceased shortly after 2 a.m.
