ORANGE, California (June 24, 2017) — Jiuan Aylward, 81, of Orange was struck by a truck Friday morning in a fatal crash at North Canal Street and East Vista Del Playa Avenue, according to a report by the Orange County Sheriff Coroner.

The crash took place about 4:58 a.m. yesterday across the street from the Village at Orange. The woman was attempting to cross the small two-lane street, but there is not stop signs or traffic lights and the intersection has no marked crosswalk. It may have been difficult for the truck to see the woman. The truck driver who struck the victim stopped, called 911 and remained with her at the scene.

Paramedics were sent to the scene and they transported the victim by ambulance to Orange County Global Medical Center in Santa Ana. She died of her injuries at 5:09 p.m. the same day.

The Orange Police Department is heading up an investigation into the fatality to determine fault. While the pedestrian did not do anything illegal when crossing at this location, it may have been difficult for the driver to see her as she crossed if it were still dark outside. Police will look into the speed the driver was going when he struck the pedestrian.  This is a factor that police will consider. The small, two-lane roadway was likely a low speed limit as it’s at the entrance of a residential area and near a shopping mall where pedestrians are expected to be crossing.  Also, some commercial truck drivers are involved in collisions due to long work hours and fatigue.

It’s advisable that a person who is hurt in a pedestrian accident or the surviving family members of a loved one killed in this type of collision, seek and obtain legal advice to ensure their rights are protected.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
