Vehicle strikes California pedestrian and drives away

Although some people think it’s relatively safe to walk down a sidewalk, it is not that uncommon to hear about an accident that involves driver inattention or another factor, such as driving under the influence. Because so many people walk and ride bicycles in San Francisco, it’s always unfortunate to find out about another pedestrian accident in the city.

Unfortunately, these accidents can be deadly. One recent morning, someone reported seeing a body next to the road. It was later learned that the man was the victim of a hit-and-run. After striking a pedestrian with their vehicle, the driver fled from the scene of the accident and has still not been located.

Following the accident, part of Middlefield Road, which is a primary thoroughfare in the city, was shut down. The victim, a man that law enforcement believes was between the ages of 25 and 40, lost his life after he was hit by the vehicle. Law enforcement has encouraged people to contact them if they saw the accident, which occurred in Atherton, or have any relevant information.

Whether it is a crosswalk accident, sidewalk accident, or any other type of incident that involves a vehicle striking a pedestrian, those who are involved sometimes experience significant difficulty. Not only do some people have to deal with physical injuries, but the various expenses that arise from these accidents can lead to financial difficulty as well. If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, it could be a good idea to talk with an attorney.

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.
