Cristobal Barajas Involved in Santa Rosa Pedestrian Accident

 
SANTA ROSA, CA (February 6, 2019) – A pedestrian hit by a car as he crossed West College Avenue in the pouring rain remained hospitalized with critical injuries Monday, Santa Rosa police said.
 
The man, who appeared to be drunk, crossed the road near the railroad tracks about 7:40 p.m. Friday, Sgt. Summer Gloeckner said. He used a crosswalk, but hadn’t hit the button to light up the pathway.
 
Cristobal Barajas, 51, of Santa Rosa, stopped after he felt his pickup struck something near the tracks and then found he’d hit the man, police said.
 
Several callers dialed 911 after the pedestrian was knocked to the median.
 
Gloeckner declined to identify the man, saying his family hadn’t yet been notified about his serious injuries. The man suffered a broken leg and head and major internal injuries but was expected to survive.
 
The crash remains under investigation. Anyone with information should call Officer Jeff Adams at 707‑543‑3636.
 
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.
