Authorities believe a Del Mar, California man suffered catastrophic injuries in a pedestrian accident after stepping in front of a semi truck on Interstate 5 in an unsuccessful suicide attempt.
The semi truck accident happened on March 25 when the 66-year-old man walked into the path of the semi truck on the southbound I-5 just north of the San Onofre truck scales around 11:30 a.m.
The unexpected factor of a man attempting suicide inevitably caused this car accident and our pedestrian accident lawyers want to remind you to be mindful of your surroundings is imperative to make certain that other pedestrians are not harmed in the event of a car accident.
Reports indicate he struck the truck hoping it would take his life. The driver of the semi truck tried to get out of the way before the pedestrian accident to avoid hitting the man but was unsuccessful.
Another man attempted suicide by way of pedestrian accident on a highway, and unfortunately our attorneys hear about cases of pedestrian accidents via suicide as well.

Before car accidents happen resulting in catastrophic injuries, drivers should always be mindful of the road and be ready to make evasive maneuvers to ensure the safety of themselves and their passengers.
