Man in Wheelchair Struck and Killed in Midway Pedestrian Accident
51-year-old Duane Glaser was fatally struck in a San Diego van crash that occurred on June 25‚ 2011‚ around 9 p.m. near West Point Loma and Sports Arena boulevards. According to San Diego Police Sgt. Jorge Leon‚ the driver had stopped at the red light and was preparing to turn right into Midway Street. At that same time‚ Glaser entered into the intersection in front of the van and was hit.
Police interviewed the 60-year-old van driver and ruled that he was not driving recklessly or under the influence of drugs.
Residents believe that particular intersection is especially dangerous and say that the city needs to increase the amount of time they give pedestrians to cross this intersection.
Glaser’s family members should seek counsel from an experienced San Diego car accident lawyer to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs‚ loss of love‚ care and companionship‚ and other accident-related expenses. A California pedestrian accident attorney can help the family cope with their loss and learn about their legal rights and options. The family may be able to pursue a case against the driver‚ employer of the driver‚ or even the city to increase safety measures.
Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved the victim for such a heartbreaking loss.
