At about 8 p.m. on Friday, November 11th, 56-year-old James McClain was killed in a pedestrian accident in Costa Mesa. A vehicle struck him near the intersection of Irvine Avenue and Anniversary Lane. He was pronounced dead hours later at a local hospital. Authorities are investigating the accident, explains an Orange County injury attorney.
Costa Mesa accounted for 2 of the 41 fatalities and 62 of the 914 injuries suffered by pedestrians in traffic accidents in Orange County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety compares the accident statistics of cities with similar populations. Cities with the poorest records receive the highest rankings, with first place being the worst. That year, Costa Mesa ranked 4th out of 56 cities for pedestrian safety.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of James McClain, the pedestrian who was killed last Friday.
