Los Angeles has a reputation for the worst city for cyclists. California freeways and coast roads are not friendly to bikers and pedestrians alike. This is why being a pedestrian is also hard in California. There are significant trails designed for recreation but not for pathways. If you are a pedestrian, there is a big possibility that you will encounter an accident because of the roads.
The Golden State has a lot of bike-related injuries and fatalities. A man was walking along Salinas Road south of Watsonville when he was struck by a vehicle. The man died due to the injuries he sustained in the accident. The driver of the car ran.
California Highway Patrol officers gathered evidence that led to a house of a 26-year-old man a few miles away. The man was arrested on several charges – driving under the influence, vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident.
Charges are more severe for drivers who fled the scene and for drunk drivers. They have to take responsibility for their actions, which caused injuries, damages, or may even have taken the lives of other people. It is also essential to help at the scene because injuries may be fatal and may need immediate attention.
Pedestrian victims of vehicular accidents always have the right to seek compensation for losses or related costs.
