San Mateo accident claims pedestrian’s life

Although vehicle collisions can cause serious injuries and even claim lives, when a pedestrian is struck by a car it can be particularly dangerous. In the San Francisco area, hectic roads can spell disaster for those who are walking or riding a bicycle. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to hear about yet another pedestrian accident in the Bay Area. When drivers and pedestrians take to the streets, it is important for them to be vigilant and aware of the risks at all times.

A recent San Mateo accident, which took place on El Camino Real, claimed the life of a 58-year-old man. According to law enforcement officials, the man, who could have been homeless, was struck by two vehicles. After the incident occurred, authorities were able to talk with the drivers of both vehicles.

Both drivers cooperated during the investigation. While one driver remained on the scene after the crash, the other was located later on. Following the accident, the road was shut down for over three hours.

Sometimes, a pedestrian accident is caused by driver inattention, while other incidents occur due to poor visibility or other factors. Some pedestrians are struck in a crosswalk accident, while others are hit on the sidewalk. Regardless of the details surrounding each accident, the outcomes can be tragic and lead to significant problems for those involved. In addition to physical injuries and loss of life, people could have difficulty covering hospital and funeral expenses. Anyone who is going through this could benefit from talking with an attorney.

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.
