[08-17-2020] Riverside County, CA - One Man Killed in a Fatal Traffic Collision in Moreno ValleyAn unidentified man was killed in a fatal pedestrian accident in Moreno Valley on Monday night, August 17.

According to the initial reports from local authorities, the fatal crash transpired at approximately 9:38 p.m. The man was reportedly run over by several vehicles on Perris Boulevard, just north of Alessandro Boulevard.

Fatal Pedestrian Accident Investigation is Underway

An investigation is currently on-going. Local authorities are encouraging witnesses to contact Deputy Kevin Seguin at the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station at 951-486-6879 for any additional information they can provide.

Pedestrians are more vulnerable to the dangers on the road in comparison to passengers in a private vehicle. Passengers of private cars are protected by seatbelts and airbags, which can decrease the fatality rate of an accident while pedestrians are not as protected from the dangers on the road. Pedestrians currently make up a large percentage of traffic fatalities in the past 33 years. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. have increased by 27 percent from 2007-2016 while other traffic-related deaths decreased by 14 percent.

When facing cases like this, it’s vital to have an experienced Riverside County wrongful death attorney specializing in fatal pedestrian accidents to conduct an independent investigation. Attorneys have the resources that can help them prove the negligence of the liable party. They can re-interview important witnesses, review relevant surveillance footage from the scene, and obtain the responsible party’s phone and texting records.
