1 Hurt in Rolando Pedestrian Crash on College Avenue and Billman Street
ROLANDO, CA (October 31, 2020) – Thursday night, a man suffered injuries in a pedestrian accident on College Avenue and Billman Street.
The incident occurred about 5:50 p.m. outside a 7-Eleven store. It happened on College Avenue and Billman Street. San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims said that a 16-year-old girl drove a Toyota Scion. However, she unintentionally pressed on her accelerator instead of the brake pedal.
Meanwhile, the 35-year-old victim was in a chair in front of the girl’s parking spot. Afterward, the Scion hit the man and rammed through the 7-Eleven front.
The authorities revealed that the victim was just soliciting signatures when the crash happened.
As a result, the victim suffered serious but not-life-threatening injuries that included pelvic fractures.
While car accidents are far more common than pedestrian accidents, there is still reason to be wary when traveling on foot.
Furthermore, common locations for these pedestrian incidents include shopping center entrances, street corners, and intersections.
