RIALTO: Pedestrian Hit by Semi-Tractor Trailer Truck on 210 Freeway

RIALTO, California (July 23, 2014) – A pedestrian suffered major injuries when they were hit by a semi-tractor trailer truck Wednesday morning on the eastbound Interstate 210 Freeway at the Riverside Avenue off ramp, according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.

The accident happened about 8:25 a.m. CHP officers responded with paramedics to assist the person, but no further information was provided.

“Hopefully this person has a full recovery,” said Attorney James Johnson. “Police are heading up an investigation into the accident to determine liability and a report is pending.”

Who is liable for a pedestrian accident?

Under California Vehicle Code Section 21950 (a) a driver is required to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians who are using the roadway whether or not they are in a marked crosswalk at an intersection, said Attorney James Johnson, a California personal injury attorney. Motorists must slow down when a pedestrian is present and be alert for potential crossings at all times.

“There will always be exceptions to the law. including the fact that pedestrians are also responsible for their own safety,” Johnson said. “A pedestrian should never suddenly step off a curb and cross into the path of a motorist. Additionally, stopping or holding up traffic is a dangerous act by a pedestrian and may put them at fault in a collision.”

Still it is incumbent upon motorists to make every effort to avoid hitting a pedestrian at all times by abiding by speed limits, not consuming alcohol or taking drugs and avoiding distractions such as cell phones while behind the wheel.
