Man in Wheelchair Hurt in Santa Rosa Pedestrian Accident on Dutton Avenue and Sebastopol Road

 
SANTA ROSA, CA (July 21, 2021) – Tuesday morning, a truck hit and injured Juventino Abarca on Dutton Avenue.
 
According to reports, 68-year-old Juventino Abarca rode a motorized wheelchair in the crosswalk. He was headed east on Dutton Avenue at Sebastopol Road at around 6:30 a.m. Then, a male GMC truck driver traveling east on Sebastopol Road veered left on Dutton Avenue. Then, the truck hit Abarca.
 
Sgt. Christopher Mahurin revealed that the 29-year-old truck driver, Edwin Valley-Morales, had a green light but a flashing yellow arrow when he turned.
 
Then, the driver continued driving for around 60 feet at 20 mph. Not knowing that he dragged Abarca until a witness waved him down.
 
As a result, Juventino Abarca sustained a broken left arm, a cut to his head, and lacerations of his liver and chest. He also suffered from abdominal pain, said Sgt. Tim Barrett.
 
Thus, responders took him to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. His status remains undisclosed.
 
Meanwhile, Valle-Morales said that he couldn’t see the man in the crosswalk from his vantage point in the driver’s seat.
 
Also, the driver showed no preliminary signs of impairment. Moreover, Mahurin hasn’t confirmed whether a chemical test was given. However, he revealed that patrol officers were sure he was not impaired due to the sobriety field test they administered.
 
Mahurin added that Valle-Morales is at fault but there will be no criminal charges. Mahurin stated, “Because it wasn’t intentional and it wasn’t gross neglect. It was merely an accident that caused no life-threatening injury.”
 

Dealing with Incidents Similar to Crash Involving Juventino Abarca

 
Accidents can leave you or your passengers severely injured, disfigured, and permanently disabled. Common events on the road can just as swiftly become safety hazards.


To avoid being involved in an auto accident, a driver must aim high in steering. Don’t make your steering adjustments based on what is directly in front of you, but rather what is down the road. If the road is winding to the right, for example, look as far into the turn as possible. This will improve your safety and make your turns smoother.
 
Also, the most valuable step you can take in response to a crash is hiring a personal injury attorney. Personal injury attorneys prioritize your recovery. At the same time, securing your future from further losses a severe accident can bring.
 
“A common misconception is that personal injury lawyers don’t care. That is simply not true. Injury lawyers care about and want justice for their clients. Also, we are driven by the desire to make our clients whole again,” says Steve Baric of Sweet Lawyers.
