California pedestrian fatally struck by vehicle

There are many reasons why people choose to ride their bike or walk. Whether they are heading to work or just trying to get some exercise, anyone who is familiar with San Francisco knows that there are quite a few pedestrians and bicyclists in the city. If you follow local news regularly, you might have heard about the surprising number of lives that have been claimed by accidents in recent months. As a result, drivers should always be cautious and do everything they can to prevent another pedestrian accident from claiming a life.

According to law enforcement officials, a driver could not see an elderly woman in a Fremont crosswalk and struck her. The victim, who has not been identified, died on the scene and was reportedly in very bad condition when responders arrived, which made it difficult for them to look at her.

The driver, who cooperated with investigators, will probably not face any charges. Washington Boulevard was shut down as a result of the incident, which took place shortly before 6 a.m. Another elderly woman lost her life after being struck by a car at the same intersection in 2011.

Whether someone is hit in a crosswalk or while walking on the side of the road, these incidents can result in serious injuries, fatalities, emotional pain and financial hardship. Unfortunately, pedestrians and bicyclists continue to face a number of threats, such as a negligent or drunk driver and hit-and-run accidents. Anyone who is struggling with these issues could benefit from talking to a legal professional.

Pedestrian Accident

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
