Pedestrian safety is a major concern on our roads and highways. Unfortunately, a tragic accident occurred last Saturday night in San Jose, California, resulting in the loss of a life. One person was hit and killed by a car on Highway 101 near Tully Road.
The incident happened at around 11:45 p.m. According to the California Highway Patrol, the victim was a pedestrian. No other details have been released yet regarding the accident.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victim’s family and loved ones during this difficult time. Losing a loved one is never easy, especially in such a sudden and tragic circumstance.
As personal injury lawyers at Avian Law Group, we want to remind both pedestrians and drivers to exercise caution and follow road safety rules to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future. Pedestrians should always be aware of their surroundings, use sidewalks whenever possible, and only cross at designated crosswalks. In addition, wearing reflective clothing and carrying a flashlight or other reflective gear in low-light conditions can help increase visibility.
Drivers also have a responsibility to watch for pedestrians and follow posted speed limits. It’s crucial to give pedestrians plenty of space when passing them on the road and to always be alert while driving, especially at night.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a pedestrian accident, it’s important to seek legal representation as soon as possible.
