A woman was struck and killed in a severe pedestrian wreck that occurred on February 24, 2012, around 12:29p.m. on Arlington Avenue, west of Fairhaven Drive in the far western end of the city. According to Lt. Eric Charrette, a black pickup crossed the double-yellow line, causing the driver of another truck to veer off the road to avoid the collision. Unfortunately, the driver instead ran into a female pedestrian walking east along the south edge of the street.
Paramedics responding to this serious car wreck treated the victim at the scene and later transported her to Riverside Community Hospital, where she died of her injuries.
Police are now searching for the driver of the black truck, who didn’t even stop. The victim’s family members may file a wrongful death claim against the pickup driver to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, loss of love, care and companionship, and other accident-related damages.
Our law office sends sincere condolences to victim’s family members.
