24-Year-Old Man Seriously Injured in Garnet Avenue Pedestrian Accident [Pacific Beach, CA]

Male Pedestrian Hospitalized in Pacific Beach Accident

Pacific Beach, CA (October 23, 2021)– On Thursday, a 24-year-old man suffered serious injuries in a Garnet Avenue pedestrian accident.

The crash took place before 8:45 p.m. between Fanuel Street and Gresham Street.

Officers said an eastbound 2008 Toyota Solara driven by a 61-year-old driver struck the pedestrian as he headed from the north side of the street to the south side.

Unfortunately, the man suffered severe head trauma. Rescuers took him to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

On the other hand, the Toyota driver was not injured in the accident.

The perverse actions of a reckless driver can increase the likelihood of traffic accidents. If you are a driver, pay close attention to those around you. Always keep a considerable distance from others just in case harm is near.


Pedestrian Accidents Can Cause Critical Injuries

In today’s current state of affairs, more individuals are walking as a new way to escape home for a while.

As a result, pedestrian accidents have also spiked in popularity, so has the risk of pedestrian accidents. 

Pedestrian accidents are incidents in which someone walking or crossing a road is injured by a vehicle striking them.

Luckily, pedestrian accidents more often than not can be avoided.

A common cause of these unfortunate incidents includes drivers speeding. Motorists who speed do not have enough reaction time to stop or yield for pedestrians who have the right of way.

Especially now, with roadways emptier than ever across the world, more and more drivers are disobeying the speed limit. Thus, pedestrian safety is at an all-time low.

Meanwhile, here are some things that we can do to avoid such accidents.

– Always avoid dangerous behaviors: walk on the sidewalk, stay sober, and make eye contact with drivers, don’t assume the driver can see you.

– Additionally, look before you step: cross streets at marked crosswalks/intersections, obey traffic signals, and watch for turning vehicles.
