Point Loma Auto Accident Takes Life Of 87-Year-Old San Diego Man
The auto accident was reported to have happened around 8:15 a.m. at Nimitz Boulevard and Centraloma Drive in Point Loma. Arnold sustained catastrophic injuries during the crash. At his age, any injury has the potential to be fatal. This proved true when Arnold died five hours later at a nearby hospital.
There are many who raise questions about whether or not drivers past a certain age should still be allowed on the road, saying everything from dementia causing driver distractions to senior drivers ability to distinguish between the accelerator and brake pedals. These questions, as our San Diego car accident lawyers know, are not easily answered.
Senior drivers have the same rights as motorists of any other age and they cannot simply be taken away. However, when lives are at stake and wrongful deaths at the root of the debate, perhaps it is time to examine a way to properly educate drivers who are currently in the twilight of their years.
Every one can use a refresher course in driver safety, whether you are 17 years-old or 71-years-old.
