San Jose Accident Investigation
A full investigation into what caused this collision is underway. There are certainly many unanswered questions such as whether or not a mechanical problem, a dangerous road condition or driver error caused this accident. Police will also look into whether speed or alcohol were factors. We do not know at this time if the pedestrian was in a crosswalk or who had the right-of-way, however, under California law a driver must always yield to a pedestrian.
We extend our sincere condolences to the family of Christopher Rose, 32.
There are many steps that should be taken following a collision to ensure your legal rights are protected, but this can vary depending on the circumstances.
