26-year-old pedestrian struck and killed

The risks to pedestrians near roadways cannot be overstated. A single mistake made by a driver can prove deadly for a pedestrian who has no way to avoid the accident and no protection from the impact.

Just how great these risks are was recently demonstrated in a crash when a man was hit while walking near the road. The car reportedly "overran" the victim. It is unclear if he was in a crosswalk or simply walking on the side of the road. What is known is that he was 26 years old at the time of his death and that he was of Greek descent.

The crash took place in Rancho Mirage, California, and was reported by the Riverside County Fire Department. They noted that the man died at the scene of the crash, before they could even take him to a local medical center, and they said that an investigation into the cause of the accident was ongoing. Reports show that he was taken to the Riverside County Coroner's Bureau for identification after the incident.

Reports are usually sparse for an accident with an open investigation, as the authorities do not release details and names until they know a bit more in many cases. However, it is apparent that the driver that hit the pedestrian was a teenager from Palm Desert. He is 19 years old. No injuries to the driver were reported.

Have you gotten injured in a car accident or lost a loved one? If so, make sure you know how to seek out financial compensation for your medical bills and other costs.
