1 Struck by Vehicle on Avocado Avenue and Washington Avenue

 
El Cajon, CA (June 28, 2020) – On Thursday, at about 11 p.m., 1 person was injured in a pedestrian crash between Avocado Avenue and Washington Avenue in El Cajon.
 
Preliminary reports determined a vehicle was traveling southbound on Avocado Avenue. Then, it passed through the intersection at Washington Avenue where it struck the victim on the roadway.
 
Yet, it is still unknown if the victim was in a marked crosswalk when he was struck.
 
The victim was identified to be in his 50s and was hospitalized Friday morning in critical condition. He suffered from head and leg injuries as a result of the accident.
 
Meanwhile, alcohol or drugs were not considered factors in the crash.
 
No arrest was immediately reported.
 
As always, cross only at intersections or street corners. It is best to cross between the white painted crosswalk lines.


The Increasing Numbers of Pedestrian Accidents

 
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, more individuals are staying at home, whether by preference or under a state-mandated lockdown. As people adjust to unprecedented routines, a classic concept has risen in modern popularity: walking.
 
Americans, as well as others around the world, have taken it upon themselves to walk outside daily. Taking walks is usually the only time in which people are spending outside. The increase in foot traffic on local sidewalks, intersections, and roads seems harmless enough.
 
However, this timeless habit can have devastating consequences. Taking walks is becoming increasingly dangerous, because of a surge in pedestrian accidents.
 
“Pedestrian accidents do not occur as much as motor vehicle accidents, but the pedestrian accidents tend to include more serious injuries,” says Tyler Toomey, a practicing attorney at Sweet Lawyers.
 
“Some of the worst pedestrian incidents involve minors because they are sometimes hard to see and they also ride bikes, skateboards, etc. Common locations for these pedestrian incidents include shopping center entrances and street corners.”
