 Santa Rosa Pedestrian Accident West College Avenue Near Railroad Tracks (Feb. 1)Pedestrian Suffers Major Injuries in Santa Rosa Car Accident

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (Feb. 5, 2019) — A pedestrian was critically injured Friday night when he was struck by a car while crossing West College Avenue.

The collision took place about 7:40 p.m. during a downpour as he crossed near the railroad trucks.  The victim had been hit in a crosswalk, but had not pushed the button to light up the pathway. Cristobal Barajas, 51, of Santa Rosa, was driving a pickup truck when he reportedly struck the man who police believe had been drinking. Paramedics responded after several witnesses called 911. Barajas pulled over after the crash and cooperated with the police investigation. The injured man was taken by ambulance to a hospital for treatment of major injuries.

At the hospital, the man was treated for a broken leg, head injuries and major internal injuries. He is expected to survive.

Police are investigating the crash and witnesses are asked to call Officer Jeff Adams at 707‑543‑3636.

It’s unknown at this time whether the driver, and or the pedestrian, will be held liable for this collision.

It’s advisable that anyone involved in a collision take the time to have a separate, unbiased investigation into what happened to ensure that all liable parties are identified and that blame is assigned to the proper parties.
