Liability for Pedestrian Accidents

Typically, under California law, pedestrians have the right-of-way in the roadway. Drivers must yield to them by slowing down or stopping, however, there are times when a collision is unavoidable such as if a pedestrian darts out in front of the vehicle. We do not know what led to this collision, but police are piecing together evidence and will speak to any witnesses to find out.
