A pedestrian accident in Chula Vista has left an apparent transient dead according to the San Diego Union Tribune. The fatal pedestrian accident occurred on the night of June 3, 2010 when the man stepped into the path of an oncoming car near 10:20 p.m.
Police have not released any names yet and have only stated that the deceased man appeared to be homeless when he was struck by a teenage driver of a Toyota Camry.
A pedestrian accident kills one man on Chula Vista’s Main Street.
According to Chula Vista police, the 16-year-old driver of the Toyota Camry was traveling west along main street. He was in the right lane when a man pushing a shopping cart walked into the path of the car near the intersection with 4th Avenue.
The man’s wrongful death occurred at the scene of the crash before medical attention could be administered. Authorities shut down Main Street between Fresno and 4th Avenue for the rest of the night in order to investigate the cause of the accident. All lanes were cleared up in time for the Friday morning commute.
Homelessness is an issue that every city faces and one which our Chula Vista law firm hopes can be solved in the near future. Not only are people without shelter or food, but they can easily be hit by cars as they struggle to stay alive on the streets.
