Elderly Pedestrian Struck in Clairemont Pick-Up Truck Accident
An 89-year-old pedestrian suffered serious injuries in an accident with a pickup truck that occurred on September 14‚ 2011‚ around 11:10 a.m. on Rolfe Road near Tolowa Street in Clairemont. According to San Diego Police Officer Frank Cali‚ the pedestrian was crossing Rolfe Road mid-block from west to east when he was struck by a northbound truck.
The pedestrian suffered a fractured femur and was immediately transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. Unfortunately‚ it is unclear from the facts of the story why the accident occurred. The investigating officers need to determine whether the driver was speeding‚ distracted‚ or if there was any other factor that contributed to this serious pedestrian wreck.
As for now‚ the injured elderly man should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County pedestrian accident lawyer who would educate him about his legal rights and options and assure that the at-fault motorist is brought to justice. The pedestrian may be eligible for compensation to cover the expenses incurred due to the accident‚ such as hospital charges‚ treatment of injuries‚ and other related expenses. A detailed investigation into the exact cause of the pickup truck accident is under way.
Our personal injury law office sincerely hopes that the injuries suffered by the pedestrian heal soon.
