Sonoma County, CA – Pedestrian Dies in Highway 101 Collision

Fatal pedestrian collision in Fresno County

Sonoma County, CA (July 30, 2018) – A pedestrian died after being struck by a vehicle on Highway 101 Sunday night.  California Highway Patrol reports confirm that the crash took place in Sonoma County around 11:25 pm.  The pedestrian was apparently walking along the roadway when they were struck by an oncoming vehicle.

There is no word available on the events leading to the crash or why the crash occurred.  The deceased pedestrian has not been identified by police.  The California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.  It is not clear whether charges will be issued.

Southern California Pedestrian Accidents

A pedestrian accident is often a serious event, leading to severe and sometimes fatal injuries.  Pedestrians have the right of way at crosswalks and other marked areas. In and around the Los Angeles area, pedestrians are a common sight.  Drivers should be aware of the presence of pedestrians at all times in order to avoid a potentially catastrophic result.

In this case, it is not clear what led to the pedestrian collision.   California  Highway Patrol will examine every angle of the accident in order to determine responsibility.  If the pedestrian was not at fault, their family may have a legal claim against the driver.

Not all pedestrian accidents can be avoided.  Sometimes, pedestrians themselves are negligent in causing the crash.  Only time will tell the true cause of this Sonoma County accident.
