A pedestrian was seriously injured in Santa Clarita last night after being struck by a driver suspected of driving under the influence at a gas station on Newhall Avenue. The accident prompted the victim to be urgently transported to the hospital.

At Avian Law Group, we understand the devastating impact that pedestrian accidents can have on individuals, families, and communities.

News reports indicate that the driver involved in this accident was suspected of being under the influence at the time of the collision.

We would like to remind drivers to always be cautious and attentive, especially in areas where pedestrians are commonly present. Pedestrians have the right of way on crosswalks, and drivers should always yield to them without exception. By following traffic laws and being mindful of others on the road, we can help prevent tragedies like this from happening in the future.

We wish the victim of last night’s accident a speedy recovery and hope authorities will take the necessary steps to ensure that justice is served. Stay tuned for further updates on this developing story.
