Riverside Accident Investigation
Police are investigating the cause of this collision and liability. Pedestrians always have the right-of-way in the roadway and drivers are required to yield to them, but there are times when a driver is unable to avoid a collision. If a driver is distracted or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, a criminal charge could be filed against them. Also, if any traffic laws were violated by either party this could help police determine fault.
