Based on the details provided so far from the report, there are still many unanswered questions. 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. A forensic examination of both the vehicle and the victim, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine what transpired. This will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Other factors to consider, was the driver distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, or traveling over the speed limit prior to impact? Police will ultimately determine fault for this accident and issue a report.

Depending on the results of the investigation, the family members of the elderly may have the right to a personal injury claim. Victims in similar cases may seek compensation for hospital bills, future medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
