At some time around 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 15th, a car struck a pedestrian, seriously injuring him. The pedestrian accident occurred near the intersection of North Coast Highway and Civic Center Drive in Oceanside. The man was taken to a nearby hospital.
September has proven to be a particularly dangerous month for pedestrians in Southern California, with at least one struck by a vehicle each week so far, explains a California pedestrian injury lawyer. In the United States, on average, one pedestrian dies in a traffic crash every two hours and another is injured every 8 minutes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In 2008, pedestrian fatalities accounted for 18.1% of all traffic fatalities in California.
The California injury lawyers at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the pedestrian injured in Oceanside a full recovery. If he, or anyone else, would like to learn about pedestrian advocacy and support groups, America Walks offers an online directory to groups located across the country.
Additional information on pedestrian accidents and rights is available to the public free of charge.
