Man Seriously Injured after Stockton, California Hit and Run

By Kelly Balamuth on February 1, 2013

When a pedestrian is injured in a vehicle accident, the injuries suffered are often serious, if not fatal, ones. Oftentimes, the driver is at fault, but insurance companies may also try to blame the pedestrian’s own actions for the crash. A Northern California pedestrian car accident lawyer would examine multiple sources in order to determine who was to blame including statements from witnesses, police reports, relevant traffic laws, etc.

As reported by ABC News 10, a SUV struck and injured a man on the 300 block of North Sierra Nevada Street. The incident occurred at approximately 10:00 p.m. Friday, January 18th, 2013. According to Stockton police, after striking the pedestrian, the driver of the SUV fled the scene.

When EMT’s arrived at the scene of the hit and run, they discovered a Hispanic male approximately 40 years of age unconscious and with severe injuries. Police report that the man was transported to a medical center for treatment.

The vehicle which struck the pedestrian was reported by police to have resembled an older model Ford Bronco or Chevy Tahoe. The vehicle was red in color, and it was last spotted going east on Lindsay Street.

Possible reasons for vehicle/pedestrian incidents such as this one include failing to maintain the vehicle in its traffic lane (veering off the street or road), speeding, driving while distracted, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
