Van Nuys, CA – LA DOT Officer Dies After Being Struck on Victory Boulevard

Fatal three-vehicle collision in Ventura County

Van Nuys, CA (July 28, 2018) – An on-duty Los Angeles Department of Transportation Officer died after being struck Friday morning while walking along Victory Boulevard.  Police report that the Officer was hit around 7:20 am.  The crash occurred in the 15200 block of the roadway.

It is not clear what the traffic officer was doing just before he was struck, however, officials report that he was outside his vehicle.  It appears as though there were at least two vehicles involved in the crash, with one of them striking the officer.  Following the crash, the officer was rushed to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Police have not released the officer’s name while his family is notified of his death.  This crash remains under investigation by local police.

Fatal Accidents in Southern California

Our sympathies go out to the victim of this fatal accident in Alamo.  It appears as though the LA DOT officer was performing his job when he was struck and killed.  Further investigation will be required to determine exactly how the crash occurred and which party will be responsible.  At this time, it seems as though the officer was not negligent and that legal action could ensue in the aftermath of his death.

When a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in a Southern California car accident, you may wonder where to turn next.  As a friend or family member, you have been unexpectedly thrown into the turmoil of caring for an injured person or, worse, planning for the future without them

In these situations, there are certain legal rights which must be protected.  In most California injury or death cases, you have two years to bring a lawsuit against the person or entity responsible for the death or serious injury.  The claim then proceeds through the court system as your attorney fights to get the compensation you deserve.
