Chula Vista Fatal Pedestrian Accident 5 Freeway
CHULA VISTA, Calif. (August 30, 2018) — Bryce Alan Bussell, 22, was struck and killed early Thursday morning as he allegedly stood in the freeway “looking up at the sky,” according to a California Highway Patrol report.
The CHP reported at 3:58 a.m. that a driver of a grey Nissan Frontier pickup truck struck the man in in the northbound No. 3 lane. The driver pulled over and stopped after the collision.
Police closed down a portion of the roadway to investigate the pedestrian fatality.
As police piece together evidence at the scene and speak with any witnesses, they will determine fault and liability.
San Diego County Crash Investigation
A full investigation into what caused this fatal crash is underway. Police will attempt to confirm the pickup truck driver’s account of what happened with witness statements and evidence at the scene.
We extend our heartfelt prayers to the family of the young man who died.
There are many steps that should be taken following a collision, but if you were injured the first step should be to obtain medical help. A police report will be necessary to file an insurance claim against the at-fault driver who caused the collision. However, it’s important to note that many insurance companies will fight these claims or offer far less than a person is owed.
We hope you are able to get the help you need, but if not call us at 855-703-4186 to request a free consultation.
