The accident happened around 8:10 pm on Sunday. A 21 year old male pedestrian was crossing westbound on Marshall Avenue underneath the 8 Freeway when he was struck by a vehicle identified as a 1997 Cadillac.
The pedestrian was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries, and was listed in critical condition. The driver of the Cadillac remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities as they continue to investigate.
“According to experts drivers are responsible the majority of the time for pedestrian accidents. These collisions occur when drivers are careless and fail to yield in a crosswalk or when they turn right on a red light without looking out for a pedestrian,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm, a California pedestrian accident and personal injury law firm.
