CHULA VISTA, California (Sept. 27, 2017) – A pedestrian was killed Wednesday morning in a multi-vehicle, hit-and-run collision set off when a pedestrian darted across the northbound Interstate 5 Freeway at Palomar Street, the California Highway Patrol said.

A 5:31 a.m. 911 call to CHP officers stated there was an adult Hispanic male wearing dark clothing and carrying a backpack dancing in the center divider on the northbound side of the freeway. The caller told police the pedestrian walked into the middle lanes and a motorcyclist went down in the No. 2 lane. It appears the rider suffered minor injuries in the collision.

The pedestrian was struck by a Volkswagen Jetta or a Honda Civic whose driver did not stop. A motorcyclist attempted to avoid the crash and went down on the freeway, the rider suffered minor to moderate injuries.

A 50-year-old San Diego man driving a 2003 Toyota Tundra was following behind the motorcycle. He attempt to avoid the crash and ran over the man’s body.

The multi-vehicle crash remains under investigation by the CHP. Witnesses or anyone with information may contact investigators at the San Diego CHP office at (619) 220-5492

Pedestrian Accident Investigation

Police are heading up an investigation to determine who is at fault for this fatality. Pedestrians are not supposed to be on the freeway, but if a person’s vehicle breaks down it may be unavoidable if they are attempting to move out of harm’s way. However, there are many unanswered questions about what took place today such as was the pedestrian under the influence of drugs or alcohol, was there any way the collision could have been avoided and were there any dangerous conditions in the roadway? It’s important that justice is served and full compensation is awarded to anyone who is hurt or suffered losses or their surviving family members.

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. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

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.
