Oceanside Car Accident Injures Pedestrian | San Diego Lawyer Attorney

By Ross Jurewitz on September 19, 2010

An unidentified pedestrian suffered serious injuries when he was struck by a car at Civic Center Drive and North Coast Highway in Oceanside on September 15‚ 2010. According to Oceanside Police‚ this North San Diego County car accident occurred around 8:40 p.m. leaving a pedestrian seriously injured.

The pedestrian suffered serious injuries to the lower portion of his body and was immediately transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

California law requires drivers to come to a complete stop at a stop sign and proceed with caution when entering an intersection. According to California Vehicle Code section 21802 (a): “The driver of any vehicle approaching a stop sign at the entrance to‚ or within‚ an intersection shall stop as required by Section 22450”. Investigating officers closed the intersection for their initial investigation and will determine whether Section 21802 or any other California traffic law was violated.

Should the investigation determine that the driver failed to yield to the pedestrian or stop at the intersection‚ he will need to be held responsible for hitting and injuring the pedestrian.  The injured victim is advised to consult a San Diego personal injury lawyer who could help him get a fair compensation for the medical costs and pain and suffering.
