Los Angeles pedestrian accidentOceanside, CA (August 10 2018) –  Tragedy struck on the Interstate 5 Freeway in Oceanside Thursday morning.  Just before 10:00 am a teenage girl attempted to cross several lanes of traffic on the freeway.  According to reports, she waved her hands at oncoming traffic to alert them of her presence.

The girl was able to make it across several lanes of traffic.  Unfortunately, she was struck by an oncoming vehicle.  The vehicle, driven by a 21 year old San Diego resident, was unable to stop in time to avoid a collision.  Police report that the vehicle was traveling approximately 30 mph at the time of the crash.

The teenager suffered critical injuries in the crash.  She was transported to the hospital but later died.  Investigators remained on scene in an effort to determine how the crash occurred.

At this time, there is no further information while police attempt to determine responsibility for the accident.

Los Angeles Pedestrian Accidents

Our thoughts are with the young victim in this tragic crash.

Pedestrian accidents can occur at any time and anywhere.  We typically think of pedestrian accidents happening in the city and other crowded areas.  However, they also happen on highways and everywhere else pedestrians may be found.  A pedestrian on the highway may actually be at greater risk of a serious accident because of the vehicle speeds.  Additionally, many highway drivers do not expect to see a pedestrian crossing the road.  This leads to the driver being unable to stop in time.

Responsibility for this crash is still being determined.  After the conclusion of the investigation, more information will be known as to whether the teenage girl’s family has any legal rights against the driver who hit her.
