A 35-year old man walking along a major road in Apple Valley just before midnight the other night was hit by a motorist and severely injured.
Apparently he was not only walking in the traffic lanes with his back towards the traffic, but he was dressed in dark-colored clothing, when he was hit. He was taken by air to a local hospital.
The 70-year old driver told officials that he did not see the man. Walking at night and wearing dark clothing is a hazard and a danger to both the pedestrian and the motorist. When walking at night it is important to be seen. Wearing reflective clothing is a good defense against invisibility.
If you are injured by a vehicle while walking at night or at any time of the day, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney to determine if you can be compensated for your injuries and expenses.
