George Whiting Hospitalized in Pedestrian Accident on Highway 101 Near East Stowell Road

 
SANTA MARIA, CA (March 20, 2019) – A pedestrian accident Tuesday morning along Highway 101 near East Stowell Road left a Santa Maria man injured.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, dispatch responded to a report about a male pedestrian walking along the center divider of Highway 101 around 5:18 a.m. Subsequently, dispatch received further reports around 6:40 a.m. about a man meandering along the southbound shoulder of the same highway.
 
Incoming reports further noted that a male, later identified as George Whiting, walked directly into the path of traffic. A pickup truck struck Whiting as he crossed the road.
 
Soon after, CHP officers, nearby drivers and paramedics arrived at the scene to provide aid to the 32-year-old. The pedestrian suffered a broken arm and cuts to his head and soon received treatment at Cottage Hospital.
 
Per a preliminary investigation, CHP officers determined that impairment did not play a role. They also concluded that Whiting had previously walked away from the Del Mar Group Home in Orcutt Monday.
 
Whenever you’re behind the wheel of a vehicle, driving safely should always be a top concern. Because more drivers are distracted than ever with their smartphones, it is crucial that we pay attention and practice defensive driving. Look out for trouble, slow down and follow all road signs and speed limits. Safer roads start with you.
