SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – An elderly man 82 years of age was hit by a car yesterday while he was standing in a crosswalk. The man was crossing a Linda Vista street Tuesday morning when he was hit by a car. The vehicle was driven by a 21-year-old woman. According to reports, the driver indicated that she did not see the man because the sun was in her eyes. The victim suffered extremely critical injuries to his hip, arm, and ribs. The police stated the injuries were possibly life-threatening due to their severity. The pedestrian was hit at approximately 7:30 a.m. when he was crossing Kramer Street at Burton Street.

California law requires that all drivers proceed at speeds that are commensurate with visibility and weather conditions. To continue to drive a car through an intersection without proper viability, and thereby hitting a pedestrian in a crosswalk certainly may constitute grounds for a case of negligence against the driver of the vehicle. The victims of such personal injury may bring a lawsuit to recover not only their medical bills but compensation for pain and suffering as well.
