The accident happened around 8:40 on Pacific Coast Highway near Newland Street. A female pedestrian, identified only as a 46 year old woman, was struck by a westbound Toyota Sienna minivan driven by an 81 year old man.
The pedestrian was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she tragically succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead. The driver of the minivan was also hospitalized with unknown injuries, and is cooperating with police in their ongoing investigation.
“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.
