Pedestrian Struck By Postal Van in San Diego

By Ross Jurewitz on January 13, 2012

A 58-year-old pedestrian was struck and injured by a westbound postal truck on January 9, 2012, around 3:45 p.m. on Gramercy Drive at Sandrock Road in Serra Mesa. According to San Diego police, the pedestrian was not in a crosswalk when he was struck by the postal vehicle.

The victim suffered a broken leg, bleeding in the brain, and severe shoulder injury in this serious pedestrian accident. The victim was immediately transported to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.

San Diego Police Department Officer Jane Jacobsen said that the van driver told investigators that his vision had been blocked by a pickup truck, which was turning into a driveway, just before the crash took place. From the present facts, it is unclear as to how this pedestrian accident occurred. Was the motorist distracted? Or was he speeding?

At this time, the victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County pedestrian accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights. If negligent driving caused this pedestrian accident, then the driver and his employer might be legally required to compensate the victim for the hospital, medical and treatment costs, and other related damages.

Our San Diego law office sends sincere condolences to victim’s family members. We hope that the injuries suffered by the victim heal soon and do not prove fatal.
