Early this morning, a female pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle in the 900 block of PCH in Laguna Beach. The accident was reported before 7 a.m., at around the same time that officers were receiving numerous calls concerning flooding and mudslides in the area, explains an Orange County injury lawyer


Throughout Orange County, there were 31 fatal and 785 injury traffic collisions involving pedestrians, of which none of the fatal and 19 of the injury accidents occurred in Laguna Beach, according to the California Highway Patrol’s 2008 statistics.


In most situations, pedestrians have the right-of-way, regardless of whether they are walking inside or outside of a crosswalk. In the event that a driver fails to yield for a pedestrian, the driver may be held responsible for any expenses related to the pedestrian’s injuries. If the pedestrian is killed in the accident, his or her family may pursue a wrongful death claim against the driver. 


All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the pedestrian who was killed on PCH this morning. 


The Orange County Register originally reported this Laguna Beach accident.


Additional resources, such as links to pedestrian advocacy groups and articles on pedestrian rights, are available to the public free of charge.
