Pedestrian killed in Ontario

A 56-year old man crossing an Ontario Street recently was killed after being hit by an SUV. A news report indicates that the man, who had been driving a big-rig, stopped, parked his truck and attempted to cross the street at an intersection with a two-way stop sign when the accident happened.

California Vehicle Code Section 21950 states, "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." It continues with, "The driver of a vehicle approaching a pedestrian within any marked or unmarked crosswalk shall exercise all due care and shall reduce the speed of a vehicle or take any other action relating to the operating of the vehicle as necessary to safeguard the safety of the pedestrian."

The 56-year old man was taken to a local hospital where he died several days later. The accident is under investigation to determine why this man was struck and killed. If it is determined that the driver did not stop at the stop sign or failed to yield the right of way to the pedestrian, he or she can be held liable for the man's wrongful death.

If you are injured or a family member is killed because of a driver's negligence, you should contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will make sure the negligent party is held responsible
