Escondido Traffic Accident Kills Wheelchair Pedestrian | Injury Lawyer Attorney

By Ross Jurewitz on September 14, 2010

Roger Emil Minx‚ 61‚ was struck and killed by a pickup truck around 7:45 p.m. while he was crossing a busy street in Escondido on September 10‚ 2010. Minx was trying to cross E. Valley Parkway near Fid Street in his motorized wheelchair when he was hit by the vehicle.

Minx was immediately transported to Palomar Medical Center where he was pronounced dead around 2:00 pm on September 11‚ 2010. San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office reported that Minx died due to the blunt force trauma to the chest.

The pickup driver stopped at the accident scene and assisted San Diego Police.  There was no sign that he was driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time of the pedestrian collision.

Escondido police traffic investigators report that the investigation is underway to know what caused this fatal injury accident. If it was the car driver’s negligence that took Minx’s life‚ which it very well may be since Minx was reportedly in the crosswalk when he was hit by the truck‚ then he might be held responsible to compensate Minx’s family for their funeral and burial costs‚ as well as the loss of love and companionship caused by his death.

We offer our sincere condolences to Minx’s family and friends for such a tragic and heart rendering loss.  We know that nothing can make up for the loss they must be feeling.
