Pedestrian Seriously Injured Hit by a Car While Crossing at Non-intersection in Lancaster

Lancaster, CA (September 04, 2020) – On Thursday, a pedestrian was seriously injured in a car crash while crossing the street outside a crosswalk near 20th Street East.

The Lancaster Sheriff’s Station news release says the collision happened near 20th Street East and East Avenue J-2 in Lancaster.

Moreover, the release says “Deputies learned the pedestrian walked east across 20th Street East at a non-intersection. The driver was driving south on 20th Street East, did not see the pedestrian and struck them.”

Furthermore, the Sheriff officials said the victim was pushing a childless stroller with items at the time of the crash.

Additionally, the release states “The pedestrian was transported to the hospital and is in grave condition/death imminent.”

Meanwhile, authorities have not released the name, age, and gender of the pedestrian. Moreover, the offending driver did not leave the scene and was cooperating with the investigators.

Ultimately, the sheriff officials said. “We take this time to remind our residents to please only cross at marked, well-lit crosswalks. Do not ever cross in the middle of the street.”

What Can Be Done in Situations Like These?

With the rise of social distancing as a safety measure to slow the spread of COVID-19. More and more people are filling the streets and sidewalks. Ironically, with this, the likelihood of accidents involving pedestrians increases.

Coincidentally, distracted drivers and pedestrians ignoring crosswalk signals can be deadly and dangerous. We’d like to remind people to please only cross at marked, well-lit crosswalks to avoid getting yourself in an accident.

While car accidents are more common than pedestrian accidents, there is reason to be wary when traveling on foot.

Tyler Toomey, a practicing attorney at Sweet Lawyers says, “Pedestrian accidents do not occur as much as motor vehicle accidents, but the pedestrian accidents tend to include more serious injuries.”

He adds, “Some of the worst pedestrian incidents involve minors because they are sometimes hard to see and they also ride bikes, skateboards, etc. Common locations for these pedestrian incidents include shopping center entrances and street corners.”
