LOCATION: Arcata, Humboldt County

DATE OF COLLISION: Thursday, July 19th

July 23, 2018- According to the Times-Standard, a pedestrian man was injured after being hit by a car at an intersection Thursday evening at Samoa and I streets.

At precisely 7:55 p.m., Roxana Wilkinson, a resident of Arcata, had been driving a Toyota Rav4. She was headed southbound on Samoa entering the intersection at I striking Earl Carey, 73, of Arcata, who was in a crosswalk at the time.

Wilkinson had apparently been blinded by the sun and was unable to see Carey crossing the street.

According to the Times-Standard, Carey sustained major injuries and was transported by ambulance to Mercy Medical Center. He is expected to survive and remains in stable condition.

Meanwhile, neither drugs nor alcohol are suspected to have been involved as the Arcata Police Department handles the investigation.

Based on the details provided so far from the report, it seems as though the driver will likely be held responsible for the collision as it is believed the victim, Earl Carey, was within the means of a marked crosswalk upon being struck. There are still many unanswered questions, however. Under California law, drivers who are approaching a pedestrian are required to exercise due care and reduce their speed for the safety of the pedestrian.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, Earl Carey will likely be entitled to a personal injury lawsuit following this collision. Injured victims are entitled to compensation for damages including medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of income due to absence from work.
