Car accidents can be tragic enough when two vehicles are involved. When a pedestrian is involved, the potential for serious harm is obvious. The lack of protection of the pedestrian, combined with the negligence that many drivers exhibit toward pedestrians, can create catastrophic incidents that often leave the pedestrian seriously injured. Unfortunately, one motor vehicle accident in California killed a pedestrian in Spring Valley recently.
The accident took place on the afternoon of Feb. 25 at around 4:30 p.m. It involved one vehicle and a pedestrian and occurred at an intersection when a car struck the pedestrian. The victim, who was believed to be a teenager, was pronounced deceased by emergency personnel when they arrived at the scene of the accident.
