According to a report from the San Diego Sheriff’s Office, an unidentified woman was walking south in the 1400 block of East Vista Way when, for indeterminate reasons, a vehicle plowed into her. Emergency personnel declared the pedestrian had died during the impact.

Wrongful Deaths in California

Accidents of this nature are tragic and unfortunate. By law, drivers are obliged to decrease speed and give the right of way to pedestrians in marked and unmarked zones. Given the circumstances of the collision, officials have not revealed if the woman had been walking in a safe zone near Albertsons.

Meanwhile, forensic teams will examine photos of the crash site and examine the vehicle and the body of the pedestrian to determine how the crash could have occurred. Officials will also consider if the driver had consumed drugs or alcohol prior to operating the vehicle or had failed to comply with basic traffic laws. Recklessness and negligence will also be considered as potential causes in this investigation.

Depending on the result of the case, the family of the victim may have the opportunity to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the guilty party. By seeking legal intervention, these individuals can be compensated for the tragic loss of a loved one, funeral expenses, and other unfortunate issues.
