1 Injured in San Diego Pedestrian Accident
San Diego, CA (December 10, 2018) – A 65-year-old male pedestrian sustained a fractured hip after being hit by a car while walking across a street on December 7.
It was around 11:00 p.m. when the officers came to respond on Fifth Avenue and Cedar Street and found the injured man, Sgt Michael Tansey of the San Diego Police Department reported.
The investigators were able to determine that the man was walking from the northeast corner of the intersection to the northwest corner on a crosswalk with a green signal. At the same time, a 43-year-old woman in an eastbound gray 2011 Chevy Impala on the 400 block of Cedar Street made a left turn onto Fifth Avenue and hit the male pedestrian, Tansey added.
As a result, the victim was taken to a hospital. Tansey also stated that alcohol or drugs were ruled out as a factor in the collision.
Anyone who saw the collision is urged to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
Whether you are a driver or a pedestrian, it is important to abide by all traffic laws and observe safety precautions. If you’re behind the wheel, do your part to avoid distractions and look out for pedestrians at all times. If you’re crossing the street, do so at designated crosswalks or intersections. When walking alongside a road, remain on the sidewalk wherever possible. If there is no sidewalk, walk on the shoulder and face oncoming traffic. By obeying traffic laws and being cautious of the conditions of the road, you can help prevent an unforeseen accident and keep yourself and others safe.
