DATE OF INCIDENT: Tuesday, July 10th

July 12, 2018- According to the Modesto Bee, a pedestrian man was killed after being hit by a vehicle Tuesday evening on Mono Way near Truckenmiller Road.

Just before midnight, the victim, a 44-year-old man from Sonora, was struck by the driver of a 2008 Toyota Prius traveling eastbound.

The 44-year-old man was in grave condition prior to being rushed to the hospital. Sadly, he died of his injuries and was pronounced dead shortly after being admitted.

Meanwhile, the driver of the Prius only ID’d as a 30-year-old from Tuolumne City cooperated with police officials remaining at the scene.

Neither drugs nor alcohol are believed to be factors in this collision while the Sonora Police Department handles the investigation.

We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members of the victim as they search for peace and comfort.

Based on the details provided so far from the report, it seems as though the driver could be held responsible for the collision as it is believed the victim had not been walking in the middle of the street 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, the family members of the victim will be entitled to a wrongful death lawsuit following this incident. Wrongful death victims are entitled to compensation for damages including funeral costs, pain and suffering, and loss of love and companionship.
