Man, 55, Injured in La Quinta Hit-and-Run on Highway 111

LA QUINTA (August 21, 2017) – An alleged DUI hit-and-run driver left a pedestrian injured on Highway 111 Saturday afternoon, August 19, according to KESQ.

The accident was reported shortly after 3:30 p.m., west of Adams Street.

As per the article, La Quinta Police Department said a 55 year-old man was struck by a 2002 Toyota pickup truck along Highway 111. The pedestrian was transported to the hospital with injuries described as non-life-threatening.

His name and condition at this time remained unknown.

La Quinta Pedestrian Hit-and-Run Accident

Meanwhile, the driver of the pickup did not stop to render aid and fled the scene. Police identified the suspect as 28-year-old Eduardo Antonio Airada Bernal who was later located and arrested for suspicion of felony driving under the influence of drugs causing injury, and felony hit and run.

The Palm Desert man was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail and is expected to make his initial court appearance on Wednesday.


In this incident, it is evident that Mr. Eduardo Bernal will be held fully responsible for causing the collision that led to the injuries of the pedestrian. Regardless of his reasons, leaving the scene following a crash is a serious crime and punishable by law. Aside from fleeing the area, the suspect is also accused of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time. Once the investigation process is over and it proves that Mr. Bernal has neglected the safety of others on the road, the victim will have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.

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.

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.
