According to police, the woman who has not been identified by name and was a resident of Salida sadly died of her injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene shortly following the collision.

The driver identified as Brian Esquivel, 19, stopped his vehicle and remained present at the scene. He was questioned and determined to have not been under the influence and was not arrested.

Details in regards to the cause of the accident remain unclear as the California Highway Patrol will be the agency handling the investigation.

Based on the details provided so far from the report, it seems as though the driver will likely be held responsible for the collision as it is believed the victim was within the means of a marked crosswalk 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 75-year-old woman may 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.
