Pedestrian Killed in Fatal Escondido Truck Accident

By Ross Jurewitz on October 5, 2011

A 50-year-old man was killed by a pickup truck on September 30‚ 2011‚ around 7:15 p.m. on Valley Parkway just west of Citrus Avenue. According to Escondido police Lt. Tom Albergo‚ the pedestrian was attempting to walk across Valley Parkway when he was struck by the eastbound pickup.

The pedestrian suffered life-threatening injuries and was pronounced dead at the accident scene. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the deceased pedestrian. From the available information‚ it is clear that the negligent driving of the truck driver led to this fatal pedestrian wreck.

The pickup truck driver will be held liable under the California Vehicle Code Section 21950(a) which states that “The driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection…”.

At this time‚ the deceased pedestrian’s family members should seek could from an experienced San Diego pedestrian accident lawyer who would educate his about his legal rights and options and would assure that the at-fault motorist is apprehended and brought to justice.

Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved the pedestrian for such a heart rendering loss.
