Jose Lopez Delgado Killed by Car in Moreno Valley

MORENO VALLEY (July 18, 2017) – Pedestrian Jose Lopez Delgado, 83, of Fontana was killed in a collision at Eucalyptus Avenue and Arbor Park Lane on Tuesday morning, according to The Press Enterprise.

As per the article, a statement released by Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said the incident was reported at 6:39 a.m. after the elderly man was struck by a vehicle at the intersection. The victim was using a crosswalk when he was hit.

The patient was immediately transported to Riverside University Health Systems hospital here he later succumbed to his injuries.

Meanwhile, deputies added that the driver involved was unharmed following the collision. Authorities are still investigating whether alcohol or drugs were a contributing factor to the deadly crash.

We are deeply saddened by the news of this tragedy. We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the friends and family members of the victim during such a difficult time.

A report entitled “Dangerous by Design 2016” produced by Streetsblog USA indicated that the Riverside region is one of the areas which have the highest pedestrian fatality rates in California. Pedestrian deaths continue to rise, not only in the county but also across the nation, making the roads more unsafe for the people.

In this particular case, the victim was in the crosswalk when he was hit by a car. Several questions have surfaced and are needed to be resolved then. Was the driver involved under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was there any recklessness or negligence on the part of the motorist?

Losing a loved one in an auto accident is both devastating and traumatic, especially if the loss is caused by a negligent party. If the investigation process determines the liability, the family of the victim may have the right to a wrongful death claim against the at-fault individual.
